Hi, Would you use Russian letters with bitmap fonts or outline fonts ?

Anyway you can go to

NeHe\'s bitmap fonts lesson (http://nehe.gamedev.net/data/lessons/lesson.asp?lesson=13) (using a bitmap)

or

NeHe\'s outline font lesson (http://nehe.gamedev.net/data/lessons/lesson.asp?lesson=14) (using real letters)

And instead using a latin-char bitmap, you choose a bitmap with Russian letters, 256x256

You might give a try to FTGL :

It can do any kind of font (you have to provide a ttf font file).

I'm using it to display Japanese characters and it works really nice.
