Justification: causes non-serious data loss

this bug also was reported in debian also, due seems are the main
distro (due copies of)

Install debian in spanish and added optionally russian and english as
alternate languajes..
When try to access in GDM3 login screen, only Spanish and english are available
NOTE: all the es_XX, ru_XX and en_XX locales where are generated correctly

I Regenerate all the locales again, and remove the stupid gnome-puach dm
install the lightdm (due now debians only offerts nothing about
display managers)
then now russian are available in languaje choices
but are not saved for specific users as defaul languje
and if does not choose for fist time, next time are not set correctly

In resume:

1) the stupid GDM3 does not offer russian languaje option if spanish are default
2) lightdm offers russian laguaje option but are not saved for users
that choose it
3) if user forgot to use russian, when logout and choose it, no
russian are showed
4) if spanish are default or english, missing russian entries are in desktop
5) only gonmepuach desktop use complete russian translations, Xfce4
and LXDE does not .
6) russian translations appears only when are set by default, and then
spanish are missing

Locale: LANG=es_VE.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=es_VE.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)
Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash
