Why is there a “Russian Users Accounts” item in my “login.conf” file by default on my FreeBSD droplet in the United States?

While perusing the /etc/login.conf file on my FreeBSD 11.2 droplet, I found this surprising entry:

# Russian Users Accounts. Setup proper environment variables.
russian|Russian Users Accounts:\

Having set up this VM on Digital Ocean in the US, why would there be an entry for Russian language, but no other languages?
