Cyrillic (Russian) recognition

Is it possible to make Calibre convert russian books, for example from RTF to PDF?

Yes, but non-ascii support in RTF is shaky. Use Microsoft Word, and save/export the file as HTML (filtered), (or possibly Web Page(filtered)). Specify UTF-8 as the encoding if it gives you the option, and then drag the html file to Calibre's main window.

Thanks, it does work but in a limited way : the images disappear. I've tried to convert from PDF to PDF but the images come out in reverse. Is there no other solution?

Ldose's method will no doubt work but I believe that Open Office is more adept at handling forign langueges than Microsoft is.

Word normally includes the images in it's html - could you see the images immediately after exporting the html from Word? Did you change the location of the html file between exporting it from Word and adding it to Calibre? Word will create a folder with all the extra content - images, etc. The folder and html file need to be moved together if you move it around the filesystem, but when you add it to Calibre you only drag the html file.

Trying OpenOffice is about the only other thing you could try.
