You have to either embed a font in the epub file using Calibre and a custom CSS file, or instal the mynook.ru firmware that correctly displays special characters in other languages. I opted for the latter but I also had success with the first option and the Liberation fonts. See nookdevz.com for a custom CSS file and font options.
