  RUSSIAN WRITINGS

It WAS local custom in Kaunas, Lithuania and other Soviet republics to put writings in Russian language everywhere. Just one example, on my picture: info on how to use the phone was put exclusively in Russian on a public phone displayed in Communications History Museum now.

Well,
in my country, Poland, there were no writings in Russian that time (before 1990). I think that in contrast to Lithuania the Polish nature of Poland (including the language) was never in danger.
