Nope, they don't have to. I don't know where you came from, but the world is a complex place.
UK bought Hitachi trains. Do you think they had to learn Japanese?
About your other points - I honestly don't care. You liked what you got? - good for you.

Just some thoughts about superior Western technics:

Warsaw subway fire sends 8 people to hospital

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — A state-of-the-art Warsaw subway train has caught fire, forcing the evacuation of some 200 people and sending eight to the hospital.

Firefighter spokesman Capt. Karol Kierzkowski said smoke and fire appeared Sunday under the body of the Inspiro train as it was pulling into the Politechnika station on Warsaw's sole subway line. Metro employees put out the fire.

Made by Germany-based Siemens, the Inspiro is considered to be among Europe's most modern subway trains. It was introduced in Warsaw with much fanfare last month.

Subway spokesman, Krzysztof Malawko, said some 200 people were evacuated. Another eight were taken to the hospital after complaining of feeling sick from smoke.

All five of Warsaw's Inspiro trains were put out of service until the cause of the malfunction is found.
P.S. I hope that Moscow authorities will refuse from plans for buying these trains.

Well, I would rather wait for investigation results... For example, 81-717/714 is one of most reliable and safe subway cars, but two idiots in St.-Peter metro managed to cause failure of brakes in a train full of passengers.

AlekseyVT - thanks for posting the article about the Warsaw subway fire. I remember in the 1980s or the 1990s there was a huge fire on the Baku subway. I don't remember if it was a Russian/Soviet or Western train that caught fire.

I think that you able to understand difference between outdated equipment (it's not secret that lack of necessary maintenance was quite common thing in post-Soviet Metros in 1990s) and new type of rolling stock.

And I hope that you can understand the difference between writing about the fire in new German trains without the investigation results and after the investigation is done. How do you know what the cause was?
And as XAN_ mentioned :

So you are sure that there was no human error in Warsaw metro fire?

People at Azerbaijani sub forum ask the same question. No answer yet.
Those trains broke several time during testing in Baku. They still decided to go ahead with the purchase.
There was no competition for new generation trains btw. people at Baku metro just pulled this decision out of their asses, without any consideration about pros and cons.
