Changing the encoding and babel options does not affect the outcome (I tried it just in case). One of the pages in the included pdf document contains a russian word in cyrillic characters, which just dissapear in the compiled document.

I get the cyrillic characters courtesy of the Apple "International" keyboards; it puts a flag of the country you want on the menu bar. When the Russian flag shows, the keyboard is Russian, and so on.
