Add several languages to Russia(RU)

Reported by: aaharoni@… Owned by: rick
Component: supplemental Data Locale:
Phase: rc Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Several major languages are not listed as languages of Russia, and they should be.

English is listed, for example, for Denmark with 86%, even though it's clearly not the native language of 86% of Denmark's population.

A similar thing should be done for Russia. These

The languages that should be added:

  • English (en): 7,574,303
  • German (de): 2,069,949
  • Ukrainian (uk): 1,129,838
  • French (fr): 616,394
  • Kazakh (kk): 401,455
  • Uzbek (uz): 273,451
  • Belarusian (be): 173,980
  • Georgian (ka): 170,659
  • Spanish (es): 152,147
  • Tajik (tg): 141,938

To write this list, I took the list of number of speakers of each language from the Russian 2010 census:
("Владение языками населением Российской Федерации")

I only went for numbers over 100,000 for now. There are a lot of smaller languages there, and I'm not sure how useful that would be, but it's an option, too.

Sorry about nagging, but I was wondering: If this issue is "accepted", why does it keep being delayed from release to release?

Is it complicated or controversial?

Is there anything I can do to help implement it?

Thanks, and again, please accept my apologies for nagging.
