Hi there,

Welcome to our forum, I will be handling your ticket.

Google servers the pages from the already indexed database, These pages might be indexed by google before you have turned off the Russian language.

Once you have turned off or hide a language the Search engines won't be able to index any new pages from the hidden language.

So in your case, you have to communicate to Google to exclude the Russian URL form the index list and request for a reindex of your site. The reindex can take a while and only after it is completed you can see the results.

Please follow the steps to recrawl your site: https://stackoverflow.com/a/15278642/2247465

Let me know if you need further assistance, I will be happy to help you.

Best regards,
Raja
