Such things are addressed on the font level, using OpenType Layout features.
You can include variant glyphs if the guillemots, and create a "locl"
OpenType feature for the Russian language (as well as a "salt" and "ss01"
feature). This is the analogical way that one would map the Serbian Cyrillic
variants for g, b, d, n and t for italic typefaces.
