unify-8859-on-encoding-mode is not relevant how to read (or
decode) Cyrillic characters encoded in UTF-8, nor how to
display Cyrillic characters decoded into
mule-unicode-0100-24ff charset.

Do you really mean that you solved the display problem by
turning it off?

Anyway, your display problem is because of your
adobe-courier-*-iso10646-1 font doesn't support Cyrillic

Please try to select "fontset->standard" by shift-mouse1.
It makes "fixed" the default family, thus has the higher
possibility of selecting an iso10646-1 font that support

If that doesn't help, or you don't want "fixed" the default
family, please find a family name of an iso10646-1 font that
support Cyrillic, and try this:

 '("_HERE_COMES_FAMILY_NAME_" . "iso10646-1"))

I implemented such a feature fairly long ago in
emacs-unicode-2 branch.  Unfortunately, Emacs of CVS HEAD
lacks infrastructure to support it.
