For printing you do not find and do not need fonts in KOI8-R
encoding. All correct cyrillic Type1 font go with AdobeCyrillic
For printing you can try console-cyrillic package from
debian distribution (at least it is in unstable). You can also use
it for X (add FontPath to /etc/X11/XF86Config-4) but for most
practical cases it will not the best solution.
Best freely availiable bitmap cyrillic fonts - Cyr-RFX
(debian packages xfonts-bolkhov-koi8r-75dpi,
Уоu can, of course, use GhostView (or gv) for print
preview (do not forget enable "anti-alias" toggle).
