emacs24-common 24.3-alt8

When typing in Russian, it's very inconvenient, that the editing commands (like C-y, C-w, M-w, M-d, C-k and so on) can't be called easily with a key combination, because Emacs treats the key presses as combinations with Russian letters.

I suggest to ignore the Group modifier when processing keys with other modifiers. Or: to have a customizable option for this.

In some older versions of Emacs (at least, with a patch in ALT's packages), the key combinations were treated the way I suggest. (If I remember correctly, it was done out of necessity: the old Emacs couldn't accept the combinations with Russian letters, and hence was patched to ignore the Group modifier.)
