EPG for some russian channels you can find in XMLTV. 
For plain VDR in ISO8859-5 http://www.free-x.de/vdr/vsetv.xml
Or for UTF-8 patched VDR http://www.free-x.de/vdr/vsetv-utf.xml or 
http://www.free-x.de/vdr/tvgrabru.xml. PLUGIN don't exists, but I generate an 
EPG with xmltv2vdr script.

Regards
Oleg
