Select menu item in the Form designer, open its properties and fill ShortcurKeys property.
If you want to do this programmatically, use the code:

' Assign Ctrl+R shortcut to MyMenuItem
Me.MyMenuItem.ShortcutKeys = CType((System.Windows.Forms.Keys.Control Or System.Windows.Forms.Keys.R), System.Windows.Forms.Keys)

Yup, just set it to "CtrlR", or in code you can specify the shortcut like this:

      MenuItem1.Shortcut = Shortcut.CtrlR
