It is now relatively easy to view sites that employ Cyrillic fonts. Most current browsers (IE6, Firefox 1.5, Opera 8) automatically detect the character encoding used in a web-page. However, if you are running a legacy browser such as Netscape (version 4 or above) simply click on the VIEW tab, then on Character set, and then try selecting one of the Cyrillic character sets -- for instance the Cyrillic Windows-1251 set, which is commonly used. The site may now be readable in Cyrillic, if not try one of the other Cyrillic encodings such as ISO 8859-5 or KOI-8R. Other possible encodings for a Cyrillic web-page are any of the various versions of Unicode such as UTF-8 or UTF-16.
If you use MS Internet Explorer, the character set should be automatically be set.
