OK, I tried the UniCyr - which does not look good to me. I'm working 
on designing braille table for blind russian users. I thought I should 
  setfont koi8r-8x8
to get the fonts look right. After loading the font I edit this file:
The mapping should be koi8 but it looks wrong with UniCyr.

Á C1 193 (   1    )01 B+2801 U+0430 cyrillic small letter a
Ä C4 196 (   145  )0B B+2819 U+0434 cyrillic small letter de
Is the above a cyrillic a and d?

Should I use ISO-8859-5 instead?
Here is "cyrillic small a" 0xD0 and not 0xC1 as above.

Can someone explain this?
Which standard will a blind text mode user use?
