So it seems that Emacs correctly detected the utf-8 encoding but just
can't find the chars in the unicode font.
You can check with C-u C-x = when point is on one of those empty boxes.

Care to tell us what was wrong?
[ Not that the C-x RET c utf-8 RET is necessary since Emacs seems to have
  figured that part on its own. ]

Probably that you have a font for the koi-8 characters but not for the
russian unicode characters (and your Emacs doesn't realize that they are
the same).
