url rewriting – How to detect location more intelligently in Nginx config file?

I’m trying to use location to detect the current locale and transfer (rewrite) the request in my Nginx config file.

This is a my configuration:

location /ru 
    rewrite ^/ru/(.*)$ /$1?local=ru;
    rewrite ^/ru /?local=ru;

So, I intend to change domain.tld/ru/blog to domain.tld/blog?locale=ru.

But I have encountered one problem. As an example, the URL domain.tld/russell would interfere with this config blog.

I want to be able to get more specific for location syntax. I want to tell Nginx to run this block only and if only the URL starts with a two-letter ru path segment.

How can I do that?
