comment Can \GetFileInfo read \ProvidesLanguage?
Thank you. I found the reason. It was in russianb.ldf which had \ProviesLanguage{russian}[...]. With \ProvidesLanguage{russianb}[...] (note b at the end) \GetFileInfo works fine although I am not sure if other things in babel will not break.

comment Problem working fontspec, babel and datetime with cyrillic
babel-russian avoids defining \cyr... commands when it detects xetex or luatex engines running. I believe that declaring these commands by hands is bad practice. It seems that datetime package should be upgraded to meet new trends in babel.
