It's not $LANG which matters ($LANG concerns the message language),
it's $LC_ALL generally (or maybe $LC_CTYPE specifically).

Here on Solaris I've set the locale to en_US.UTF-8 and I can copy
between emacs and other applications.  Not quite well, though: when I
copy Russian text from Emacs buffer it works up to the first
whitespace (the first word is copied correctly, the rest is garbage).

But there is no such a problem for the Latin alphabets, which seems to
be your case.
