Emacs 21.3 by default does not convert UTF-8 Cyrillic text to
ISO-8859-5 internally. On X, it uses Unicode fonts to display UTF-8
text, and Cyrillic fonts to display the other encodings. In terminal
mode, you only have one terminal encoding, so that is the reason why
you cannot see the UTF-8 text.

See the functions unify-8859-on-encoding-mode and
unify-8859-on-decoding-mode to turn on conversion between UTF-8 and
ISO-8859-5.
