Hello, Zelphir!
I had such problem on Gnome+Wayland. It did not used another newly added 
layout, but only US even when I choose Russian in the applet in the gnome 
toolbar (the bar on top). It was for all apps under Gnome+Wayland. But I only 
tried to config system for it, so I had not purpose to solve it.
I have no such problem in Xfce4.
What is your desktop environment and display server? Also your system config 
might be needed.
