Dear Alain,

At the end of this email, I am including one of my oldish test files for 
Cyrillic, if it might be of some use to you.

I do not know how to find a complete table with the latex commands for the 
cyrillic alphabets. Perhaps it can be extracted (typeset) from our 
TeX Live distribution. I can see some vague instructions with

$ texdoc cyrillic

One can see the OT2 commands for the cyrrilic letters in ot2.pdf, by:
$ texdoc ot2

AMSFonts might be suitable for only few words in other languages in a 
large document, but I have not tried them for Cyrillic. The commands

$ texdoc amsfndoc
$ texdoc amsfonts

output User’s Guide to AMSFonts Version 2.2d, but the package is actually 
Version 3.00, as can be seen by issuing:

$ texdoc AMSFonts


The following is my test file:
%\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} %% activate the Russian Phonetic keyboard
                              %% use the Show Keyboard Viewer
%\usepackage[ot2enc]{inputenc} %% take this off with the Russian keyboard
\usepackage[OT2]{fontenc}      %% take this off with the Russian keyboard




%Тук! %% Russian Phonetic keyboard activated



%Здесь! %% Russian Phonetic keyboard activated




\cyra, \cyrb, \cyrv, \cyrg, \cyrzh, ..., \CYRA, \CYRB, \CYRV, \CYRG,

\cyrhrdsn, \CYRHRDSN,

\cyrsftsn, \CYRSFTSN,

\u{i}, \U{i}
