The KOI-7 I saw when I was in the USSR in the 1980s was this one:
This is the character set most commonly used in email between the USSR
and Western Europe and the USA (etc), and also widely used within the USSR,
since a great deal of computing equipment lacked Cyrillic displays and/or
keyboards, and communication links (including e-mail) were predominantly
7-bit (e.g. BITNET for e-mail).
