As root, "vi /etc/X11/XF86Config-4"

In vi, type "/cyrillic" followed by the "Enter" key.

Assuming that lands the cursor on the line you mention above, hit "^"
then "i" then "#" then "<ESC>" then "ZZ".  The line should end up
looking like:

        # FontPath     "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic"

Re-start X (log out of X Window, then log back in).

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
