Maybe, yes. This is what Eugenyi decided for Ukrainian, for
instance. Bulgarian, Kazakh and Macedonian also do not use

It's activated for Belarusian and I actually fail to remember what did
motivate it (maybe Eugenyi advice....he's usually my reference when it
comes at cyrillic stuff)

Indeed, they are. Localechooser's finish-install does so but, from
Eugenyi explanations, it indeed overwrites the defaults set by the
console-cyrillic package itself.

Indeed, I see two ways to go:

-remove console-cyrillic for Russian and do just like we do for

-do NOT overwrite console-cyrillic defaults in localechooser's
finish-install script
