Russian lang.

Using calibre on OS X and Linux computers. I have tried converting Russian pdf and rtf documents to be readable on the Kindle. Actually whenever I try those, calibre errors out. But I also have subscribed to my Google Reader which has a fewer Russian feeds. Although calibre doesn't error out, the feeds are unreadable on the Kindle. Is there any advice on how to get Russian documents to be readable or is this something Amazon isn't supporting yet?

IIRC the Kindle doesn't have support for displaying cyrillic characters
