Thank you for your reply, I just tried to set it up.
Unfortunately, I can confirm the problem.
I tried to start "notepad.exe" from a russian win98 installation (I mounted 
vmware's virtual disk using smbmount).
Russian is there in window title (in managed mode) and in dialog (open, 
save, search dialogs show (tiny) russian letters).
But in menus, rectangles are displayed instead of characters.
"Resolution" = "96"
"Default" = "-monotype-arial-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-koi8-r"
"DefaultFixed" = "-monotype-courier new-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-koi8-r"
"DefaultSerif" = "-monotype-times new roman-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-koi8-r"
"DefaultSansSerif" = "-monotype-arial-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-koi8-r"
Yes, same fonts work perfectly on the rest of desktop.

Also, I can't get any russian input (how to swithc keyboard to russian? I 
use xkb configuration with "menu" switch key - it doesn't work for wine).

Where else the problem may be?
Maybe something wtong is in registry created by winesetup?
