To make the console work with Cyrillic characters, edit the /etc/ttys
file and change the console type from 'cons25' to 'cons25r'.  Set the
console fonts to use the koi8 character set by assigning the variables
in /etc/rc.conf, and choose an appropriate keyboard map:

    font8x14="koi8-r-8x14"
    font8x16="koi8-r-8x16"
    font8x8="koi8-r-8x8"
    keymap="ru.koi8-r"

(or there are koi8-u-.... font variants.  Not entirely sure what the
difference is there.)  These will become the defaults at the next
reboot. See kbdmap(8)/vidfont(8) for an interactive tool for changing
the console fonts.

        Cheers,

        Matthew
