Not sure I can help. First, you don't need to generate a locale, it's already 
available as ru_RU.UTF-8 (or similar). Your graphical session will need to be 
loaded with that locale.

To do so, either set it globally with the locale field in your config.scm, or 
find a way to have it loaded by the user. Maybe your login manager allows you 
to set a locale, which might work, or configure the desktop environment to use 
the locale. This is not something managed by guix, but with user preferences. 
Maybe you will need a separate package for that (xfce4-settings or something).

Sorry I can't provide much more help.
