First you should set in GNU Emacs a language environment: Cyrillic-ALT, Cyrillic-ISO, Cyrillic-KOI8, Ukrainian ... This should already prepare most things.

If this doesn't help yet, then there are environment variables in xterm's shell, LANG and LC_CTYPE. GNU Emacs 22 will reverse this sequence.

If this still is not sufficient you have in GNU Emacs a few variables and functions with 'coding-system' you can set, for example:

        (set-terminal-coding-system             'XXX)
        (prefer-coding-system                   'XXX)
        (setq default-buffer-file-coding-system 'XXX)
