I tried babel, because I used to have similar problem with

'Standard LaTeX font' is Computer modern, which is very similar to
Monotype Modern. Unfortunatelly I was unable to find any foundry
selling Modern or similar typeface with cyrilic.
In case you would need "standard fonts" (times/helvetica/courier)
equivalents, have a look at the Free family
(http://www.nongnu.org/freefont/). They seem to be quite good and
contain wide range of glyphs.
