It maybe that part of the selection has no locale (ru) translation available, so it is unrecognized or defaults to English

22.214.171.124. Choosing a Keyboard
Keyboards are often tailored to the characters used in a language. Select a layout that conforms to the keyboard you are using, or select something close if the keyboard layout you want isn't represented. Once the system installation is complete, you'll be able to select a keyboard layout from a wider range of choices (run kbd-config as root after you have completed the installation).
And you should carefully check
- Language settings
- Locales in use
- Keyboard that is selected
And when you are using ru (Russian) are the menus, screens applications and keyboard entries working correctly (as you would expect!)

So. Regarding language in the login screen - as far as I understand the advice is to change login manager? Is this the only option? I have not tried it actually. Yet I'd like to know wheter there is another solution.
I know that default language is English so far. So I just enter password without changing layout and rely on default language.
Regarding entering password after locking - I also have not solved this problem. I can not enter password after unlocking my laptop. The only option is calling "Switch user" dialog and selecting my active (locked) session.
Eventually i'm thinking about reinstalling Linux Mint. I have not decided what to install yet - Mint 13 or Debian 2012. Probably reinstalling will solve my problems. Also I want to reinstall OS because after I have installed UP4 I have not got updates for several months. This upsets me
I like for some unknown reasons KDE (actually when I began to become acquainted with Linux I installed Ubuntu on my wife's laptop as it was considered to be one of the most simpe and user-frienldy distrs and Kubuntu on my laptop so as to have something similar but at the same time not to have 2 similar distrs ). So what about Mint KDE? Is it a good alternative for Kubuntu? I have Kubuntu installed on my desktop at home and it's working fine enough thoug it is a bit buggy
