Cyrillic fonts for Calibre in Linux

Hi I have a PRS-600 and I had firmware reinstalled from it on day 1 so I could read Russian books along with English ones. Under WinXP it was also easy to find cyrillic fonts for Sony Reader Library, such that my book list does not show up as gibberish.
Now I have moved to ubuntu and try to stick to Linux native software as much as I can, so Reader Library is out. Calibre is great at detecting the device and transferring books back and forth - but the russian book titles do not show up. What I have is thus purely a display problem for Calibre software, because the Reader obviously still reads everything. How do I add fonts to Calibre?
Thanks,
Albina

Did that. Now my menus are in Russian but book titles are still garbled. Any ideas?
