If you…

  • work in Linux,
  • live in Russia,
  • like English interface, and
  • dislike 12-hours clock and mm/dd/yyyy dates, then…

this is what you need — English language locale for Russia. It is based on en_US locale (English language locale for the USA) and generally keeps English language for messages, but fixes parameters which look most ugly for Russians:

  • Ridiculous 12-hour clock is replaced with 24-hour clock.
  • Date format is changed from confusing mm/dd/yyyy to unambiguous ISO yyyy-mm-dd.
  • Weeks start on Monday, not Sunday.
  • Thousand separator is not comma but non-breaking space.
  • Imperial units are replaced with metric ones.
  • Default paper sheet size is A4.
  • Territory is changed to Russia: country name, country phone code, currency name, etc.

See more detail at See detailed description at en-ru.sourceforge.net in English and Russian languages.
