rumakeindex is used to run makeindex(1) on idx files that use Russian characters. It is part of the T2 package.

rumakeindex runs sed(1) on the idx file to convert Cyrillic character commands to 8-bit ASCII characters; pipes the results through makeindex(1); and then through tr(1) to do some final conversions. The results are placed in a KOI8-R encoded ind file.
