And this approach will work with sectioning commands (section, chapter



\usepackage[utf8]{inptenc}           %%% Only if you will insert Russian letters
                                     %%% in UTF-8 encoding.
\newcommand{\Russian}[1]{%           %%% Please note that this command defined in
  {\fontencoding{T2A}\selectfont#1}  %%% babel already

commands, table and figure environments have appropriate prefixes on
