Chrome redirects to Russian site versions

Hello,

Recently Chrome on my desktop has been redirecting me to Russian versions of websites. For example, if I go to speedtest.net, it'll redirect to speedtest.net/ru
If I go to lastpass.com it'll redirect me to lastpass.com/ru

What's going on here? Is this a browser/system setting or do I have a malware?

    If you've looked at certificates and are confident you're getting the Russian localization of those sites, rather than phishing sites or whatever altogether, then you've got a regionalization redirect occurring for some reason. Are you using a VPN, or have you accidentally misconfigured a language setting?

    You can start using something like an NCR plugin for chrome that appends /ncr to all sites, but that won't get to the core of why chrome thinks you're in a different region.

    What is this I don't even.
