For example consider a java source code file in Russian. I know the identifiers and String literals can be written in Russian. What about the keywords? Should they be written only in English? Does java has implementations where everything (including keywords) can be written in a local language?

This is a common query. there are varies projects that make adaptations to languages for the purpose of localisation. http://www.chinesepython.org/cgi_bin/cgb.cgi/english/english.html for example, however from my experience I think it is more common for people of different nationalities to stick to the default english implementation.
