According to the Name Field Guidelines we use "their conventions instead of ours". So you should write the Last Name At Birth (LNAB) in Cyrillic. To make it readable also for people who don't know Cyrillic, you can write the latin transcription in the "Other Last Names" field. I don't know, if they are in the latin version then findable by the search though.

Correct on LNAB, but should also be first, last, and middle name (patrynomic) in Russian (Cyrillic).
