DR,

using python 2.1.3 I had no problems with the following script:

import pickle
rus = "\u0444"
fh = open('rus.dmp','wb')
bin = 1
pickle.dump(rus,fh,bin)
fh.close()
del rus
fh = open('rus.dmp','rb')
rus = pickle.load(fh)
print rus

it returns:

\u0444

the same when setting binary mode (bin) to 0.
When you encounter problems with older versions, maybe
you should use binary mode with pickle.dump().
Cheers
