I know (from listening to United's famous Channel 9) that ATC in Russia with Russian aircraft is in Russian.

But anyone know if the other republics besides Russia also still use Russian language ATC or did they switch to their native language or maybe even 100% English? If a Russian plane flew to say, Kazakstan, what language would it use there?

Good question. Over the Ukraine at least, controllers will generally speak Russian to Russian crews, although this is probably a matter of convenience rather than part of official policy.

Most still use Russian with Russian aircraft. Except for the Baltics, where English is the exclusive language.

Russian being an official ICAO language, you still have Russian speaking only ATC in some part of Russia. When we fly to remote areas, such as north eastern Siberia, we organize a russian navigator on board to translate. Same when we have to land in airports not covered by Jeppesen library due to the "russian" only ATC.
You usually get information on the language status when you check the FIR Notam.
