As of 2.7.1, we only include translations for the installer that are
at least 50% complete.
There are currently 27 languages that qualify, the Russian translation
is, unfortunately, not one of them.  Hopefully the Russian translators
will be able t to

Checking the translation checkbox will install the translation, but
the language used during the installation will, by default, drive
which language is actually used at runtime.

See http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/Using%20Pidgin#HowdoesPidginforWindowsdeterminewhichlanguagetouse
for how to change the language.
