Attached as requested.  I do remember when I originally downloaded Qgis that I wondered about  the "UK" setting but as everything appeared in English I was not bothered by it.  I see now that there is no specific "GB" setting just the combined US and GB flag.
Screenshot attached.

Interesting notion. For me at least Ukrainian appears as "Українська" no matter the language I change it to - I would never have guessed it was Ukrainian, but looked up the flag on wikipedia. 

"uk" is the ISO 639-1 value for Ukrainian, but that would suggest his system settings were set to Ukrainian or QGIS was picking them up as such.
John - can you share a small screenshot of your locale" screen and the language list?

"UK" I think may stand for Ukraine as far as location is concerned, you may want to use "GB" instead
