I run 
man <some_man_page_with_russian_translation>
and than read it with my eyes. ;-) Ofcourse this is done with
russian fonts loaded and ru_RU.KOI8-R locale. This is done with groff
compiled w/o japanese support.

I use them both. ;-)

1). If you're using libc6 >= 2.1.92: there is error in Ben's package,
I've sent him a patch already. You can just make
ln -s /usr/lib/locale/ru_RU.koi8r /usr/lib/locale/ru_RU.KOI8-R
2). Load xterm with cyrillic fonts (-fn option) and russian
3). man rpm (for eg.) 
This is done with groff compiled w/o japanese support.
