Where are the Cyrillic letters to choose from? In Vietnamese I have the letters with their tones. The text for Russian here appears to be using phonetic English.

You can use this addon if you use Firefox:

One of its input modes allows you to type Russian Cyrillic letters phonetically, so you won't need to memorize a new keyboard layout.

You need to set up your keyboard to be a russian keyboard. If you go into your start menu and type "Language" you'll see one of the options is something about setting up keyboards.
