Garbage?  Empty boxes would indicate that there's no available font, but
bogus glyphs indicate a problem with the encoding.  Did you visit the
file with `C-x RET c utf-8 RET C-x C-f'?

Use `C-h h' to display the HELLO file.  Is the Russian text correctly
displayed?  Does it make a difference if you invoke emacs with the
--font=fontset-standard option?  How about disabling any Fedora
customizations with --no-init-file --no-site-file?
