I tried to use LANG=rus; gnucash&; Gnucash loads russian translation, menus
and dialogs are all OK, but when it gets 
to the General Ledger, the titles of all columns are apparently written in
another russian encoding and are not readable.
There are several encodings of cyrillic letters in fonts : 
Cyrillic (KOI8-R)
Cyrillic (Windows-1251)
Cyrillic/Russian (CP-866)

Shouldn't there exist one and only one location for searching locales ? OK,
this may be distro-dependant, 
but there must be something about it in Filesystem Hierarchy Standard. Hope
I will ever find time to define this 
problem exactly.

Till then, thanks for all the fish :)
