I don't think that this really matters. Change in economy type affects the way how industry works, its relationships with the state etc. It does not directly affects export - USSR
sold aircrafts (not only to allies, e.g. USSR
-Chinese relations were more complicated in some questions than USSR
-American) much more successfully than current Russia.

That's their problem... Probably, French and German are not used as main avia languages in those countries.

Of course. Tu204 has option of English language FMC.

They are interested, but they have huge amount of problems. There is a large demand for new a/c even in domestic market. And there are many unsolved problems (financial, legal, etc), because of which this demand cannot be easily answered. And creating English-language-only FMC will not solve it, but create additional problems to potential customers.
