Well, atРеформа_русской_орфографии_1918_года Lunačarskij's name appears twice, and Šaxmatov's name appears twice. 

But at Šaxmatov's name appears once only and Lunačarskij's not at all.  

The German cites only the "Volkskommissar für Bildung", and the UkrainianРеформа_російської_орфографії_1918 refers only to Šaxmatov.

The Russian article does specify Lunačarskij as the author of the decree "Декретъ о введеніи новаго правописанія" in «Газета Временнаго Рабочаго и Крестьянскаго Правительства». 23 декабря (5 января) декабря 1917, № 40, стр. 1.
