How can I change LANG and LC_MESSAGES Environment Variables?

There is Environment Variables section under System Information in Confluence Admin panel.

And there are unexpected RU values for LANG and LC_MESSAGES.

LC_MESSAGES 	ru_RU.UTF-8
LANG			ru_RU.UTF-8

My system in CentOS and when I go to console i see

# locale
LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
# env | grep ru
LC_MESSAGES=ru_RU.UTF-8
LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8

How can fix this and set en_US instead ru_RU for confluence?

I was able to fix this by commenting SendEnv LANG LC_* line in /etc/ssh/ssh_config on my local computer, i.e. on linux computer from which I ssh to confluence server.

After commenting this line I disconnected via ssh from confluence, connected again and restarted confluence daemon.

After restarting confluence daemon I see LANG en_US.UTF-8 in Environment Variables section under System Information.

change locale for user under which the application run

export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
