I localized my LFS successfully to russian.
Messages from applications and even mc are localized.

But what is a keyboard switch between languages?

your question is unclear, but if you mean how do you get to use english, your easiest way is to to put the localisation stuff in ~/.bash_profile and use another user

su - somebody

then will add their enviroment. It's not straightforward, as no doubt you noticed.

Paraphrasing question.
What is hotkey on keyboard to switch input between languages eng\rus in console?
How to set up it or change if it exists?
All characters input now are english only.

In an X terminal use

setxkbmap -layout gb
to set a gb keyboard for instance, for console see this post:

Also please try google first as this link is the top entry when using 'change keyboard map in console linux' to search google.
