  The style of math is varying from country to country and from publisher to
publisher. In the beginning of 1992 there was a discussion on TEX-D-L about
this theme. I had looked up several journals, one of which was in russian
language.

(in russian)
upright integrals, italic d,\partial,e,i; upright greek (caps and lowers);
sometimes upright cyrillic letters in formulae. International units of
measurement (like W) are abbreviated with cyrillic letters. \curl translates
to rot' and \tr to sp'.

However, I'm not convinced of the necessity of a cyrillic math alphabet as
a part of the standard encoding, the text cyrillic can do this part for most
applications.
