I don't know of Outlook supports proper conversion between UTF-8 and the
user's character set.  If not, you are lost, but otherwise:

You need to convert the KOI8-R strings to UTF-8, e.g. with the Perl
module 'cyrillic':

You should also convert the resulting strings to base64
and represent them as
  cn:: base64-string
(note the two ":"'s) but it probably does work if you don't
use base64 too.
