This works for me when I need to put in a few Russian words. You have to encode using unicode (UTF-8) in the TeXShop preferences, I think. I get the cyrillic characters courtesy of the Apple "International" keyboards; it puts a flag of the country you want on the menu bar. When the Russian flag shows, the keyboard is Russian, and so on. 


брест\textbf{и}, брод\textbf{и}ть
to roam, wander (\emph{501 Russian Verbs}, p.\,15)


which looks like this: (I enlarged the font to 18 point so it would be easier to read, and generated it with LaTeXiT)
