Garbage?  Empty boxes would indicate that there's no available font, but
Checked again; I am getting empty boxes.

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'?

I think you got the above syntax wrong.
I'd also like to know what elisp to eval, to invoke utf-8 encoding

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?

Disabling the startup file made no difference.
C-h h does display Russian "hello" properly.
Emacs also works fine in -nw mode in an xterm.

This seems to demonstrate that the font is available...
