texinfo.tex currently does not support Cyrillic.  The default fonts
used by texinfo.tex are Computer Modern and do not include any
Cyrillic glyphs (and there is no such thing as a "Unicode TeX font").

But there is much more to it than just changing the fonts to the ones
with Cyrillic glyphs.  For one thing, you'll need to define mappings
from Unicode chars to appropriate slots in the font encoding.  For
another, you'll need to build a format file with Russian hyphenation
patterns.  All this is planned in the (hopefully) near future.
