I want view man pages in Russian. Is it possible to do this? If yes, what do I need to do? Can I install it just using apt-get? I tried to google, but didn't find an answer.

man supports multiple languages, as long as the manpage you want to see has that language included.
First, check if you have a russian locale generated. Do
locale -a and see if you get a russian one, for example
ru_RU.utf8. If you don't, edit
/etc/locale.gen as root, un-comment the one you want and run
locale-gen as root.
You will then be able to ask for a manpage in russian with
LANG=ru_RU.utf8 man man
ru_RU.utf8 is returned by
