The only thing I wonder about is why do you enable a LEIM input method
while you are using a XIM input method at the same time?

When a LEIM input method is disabled, everything works correctly.
After switching a XIM input method with Group_switch and typing
a character while holding Mode_switch, Emacs inserts a Latin character.

When you do the same with a LEIM input method enabled, X sends a Latin
character to Emacs, and LEIM translates it to Cyrillic.  This is the correct
behavior for LEIM.  It is your decision to enable a LEIM input method.
Emacs doesn't enable it by default.

Isn't it easy for you just not to enable a LEIM input method?
