There is legislation with similar impact (although less heavily promoted)
in the EEC (CEC), Australasia, etc.  I think the main difference in the USA
is that there are partially objective rules, rather than just a requirement
to be accessible.

If Russian doesn't have similar laws, to those in Western Europe, they
must now be to the political right of the USA.
