When Application menu is opened, it's not possible to switch input language, so you should close it, switch, and open again. Screenshot shortcut is not working in this mode too.

I use secondary language with cyrillic letters, guess I could miss some settings for it, inasmuch as Android Studio hotkeys work only with primary english keyboard.

This might be related to how X (the display server of most Linux distros, including elementary) works. What also do not work when the application menu is opened, for example, are global multimedia hotkeys.
