It is a limitation of groff that a character must be a one-byte entity
or `\[...]'.  Hence no native UTF-8 input support, but you have to use
the preconv preprocessor.

However, I don't understand this line:

  .char a\[u0431]

You want to map `Latin small letter a' to `Cyrillic small letter be'?

Can you prepare a small example which really demonstrates what you
want to do?
