That won't work AFAIK. Word handles Unicode fonts (like the Arial font that includes Latin, Cyrillic, Katakana, Sanskrit, ... glyphs, all in the same font); PageMaker does not recognize any characters over 255. I don't think there is any way PM will map the Unicode to a Type 1 Cyrillic font. I'm afraid you'll need to find another solution.

I have received a Word doc written in Russian and must put it into a

This is the first time I'll have used a cyrillic language in PM. Copying the
Word text into PM doesn't work as I don't have a cyrillic font for PM. If I
buy such a font, eg an Adobe helvetica cyrillic font, when I copy over the
text from Word and change its font to cyrillic, will all be well? I'm not
retyping Russian. Too much vodka is needed.
