In particular, the Russian translation says the first thing to do is:
Если кто-то взломал ваш аккаунт, первым делом зайдите на страницу http://www.livejournal.com/editinfo.bml и проверьте, был ли сменён ваш адрес e-mail.
Obviously, if the password was changed and you don't know it, you can't go to Edit Info page to check this. So immediately there's a problem. The English version now has the right steps in the right sequence.
This FAQ is very important to let people know how to resecure their accounts in cases of break-in. We need it re-translated.
And I'm not up to it myself.
