PSA/*signalboost*: LiveJournal's TOS rewritten; valid TOS only available in Russian

I could make a bad "In Russia, TOS reads you" joke but OK, the heck with it. Just a heads-up.

ETA, minutes later: just had to change the headline from "new TOS only available in Russian" to "valid TOS only available in Russian" because actually, that's what the new TOS says. ETA2: added screncap.

So they have a new TOS written in English with no known Russian translation, which is not, according to them, "legally binding". The "valid" (old) version is now suddenly only available in Russian.

I'm not sure which law they're claiming makes what TOS valid or why but Russian "law" sure seems rather "interesting".
