Translation sites seem to think it is the quotes key:

This website lists the alphabet and other characters:

Or to get the russian keyboard in Windows XP

Other university sites or similar are the best places to look

I don't believe those characters are used in Russian, at least not as a letter.   I have called the symbols a right or left double chevron but they are probably called a mathematical right/left double angle bracket.  The UTF code I believe is U+27EB and U+27EA (respectively).

Let me know how that helps or if you have a question.
