When I am trying to execute a command in GNOME GUI by pressing ALT+F2,
I am not able to paste any text under these conditions:

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy text from a text editor (gedit or kate) or from the console
2. Turn on Caps lock
3. Press ALT+F2
4. Press CTRL+V
5. The bug appears
6. Turn off caps lock
7. Add Russian keyboard layout, for example Phonetic with Winkeys
8. Repeat steps 1,3,4
9. The bug appears
10. Set the keyboard layout to US English.

Actual results:
Cannot paste any text as a command.

Expected results:
Paste the copied text as a command.

That's because the shortcut is ctrl+v, not ctrl+V.

This is the expected behaviour, not a bug.
