AFAIK console-cyrillic is the recommended way to set up cyrillic console. 
It configures everything, not only screen fonts, and does it's job well.

d-i installs console-cyrillic for russiab locale. Probably it should 
install it for all cyrillic locales.

I think it is a good idea to add a menu-entry to base-config which will be 
displayed only when cyrillic locate is detected anfd call dpkg-reconfigure 
console-cyrillic, to help user to set up a working cyrillic console.
