Do this (as Mark Smith suggested):

on mouseUp
   set the unicodeText of field "Russian2" to the unicodeText field  
end mouseUp

The useUnicode property is very limited in what it influences.  It  
applies to charToNum and numToChar only.  For example, from the code  
point of a Unicode character you can create the host-orter UTF-16  
used by Rev.
