    • You will first need to do an Anytime Upgrade from Home Premium to Ultimate in Russian then you can download the English Language Pack through Windows Update.

      To get additional MUIs by using Windows Update
      MUIs are available through Windows Update as optional updates. They aren’t installed automatically.

      Click to type: Windows Update.
      Hit Enter

      In the left pane, click Check for updates, and then wait while Windows looks for the latest updates for your computer.

      If any updates are found, click Select optional updates.

      Select the MUI that you want, and then click OK.

      Click Install updates. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

      Since Anytime Upgrade is not available in Russia, you will need to purchase a Windows 7 Ultimate upgrade package (a retail boxed copy), then use the product key and Anytime Upgrade to upgrade Ultimate.
