I do not think so. From init.rc:
# switcher daemon
service switcher /system/bin/switcher
You probably would be able to kill and restart it (never tried it myself) as "normal" daemon. As for Russian firmware - again, I am not sure how it is written and where it get a key, but Russian firmware is using different versions of system libraries and different encryption key. So I do not think you could simply replace it...
May be kernel has some other switcher? Not sure - but in this case I am sorry for confusion.
