If you try C-\ you have to set LANG in environment. If your Emacs
can't activate input methon _inside_ Emacs (via Set Language
Environment), I guess you use precompiled Emacs (I sure it was
compiled without leim. For example, Emacs under Cygwin 2 years

Russian "hello" can be displayed if you choose cyrillic default
fonts, but it doesn't mean that Emacs sets the cyrillic encoding.
It may be latin-1, for instance.

Get both emacsXXX.tgz and leimXXX.tgz, untar in the same directory,
recompile it and be happy.

To write cyrillic I simply do:

M-x set-language-environment

and choose Cyrillic-ISO (you may want to Cyrillic-KOI8). Then I do

M-x set-input=method

(or invoke this command with C-\) and choose one of the cyrillic input

That should be all. (My Emacs is version 21.4.1, on Debian).
