I have two input types: Russian & English. When I change language, I see that the icon changes, but nothing actually happens; I still type with English letters. When I open the keyboard layout chart I see Russian letters, but I can type only English letters.

I've tried changing input method but it doesn't help.

Does anybody have any idea about this issue?

I use Ubuntu 16.04 (with Unity). I use Ctrl+shift+space to switch layouts, but clicking the panel icon doesn't do anything different.
