Russian from ssh console - FreeBSD

I'd like to be able to read Russian messages from slrn. I set LANG environment variable to ru_RU, but it does not help. I think it is because the underlying system does not support Russian or something like this. I don't plan to type messages in Russian. Most of the GUI apps seem to support foreign languages out of the box. What's so difficult with the console apps?...

    I added the following to ~/.login_conf:

    me:\
    :cht=KOI8-R:\
    :lang=ru_RU.KOI8-R:

    SLRN and mutt started to send guarbage messages in some cases.

    I decided that it is font related and tried to execute the following
    command from ssh terminal:

    vidcontrol -f cp866b

    I've the the following message:

    vidcontrol: must be on a virtual console: Inappropriate ioctl for device

    So, is there any way to change font loaded when using ssh terminal?

    Also, how do I know which encoding to use (KOI8, DOS, Windows)? What
    if some messages use KOI8 and some are Windows?
