Hello, is it possible to add Cyrillic Keyboard to e-ink Kindles?

I may add this keyboard only with hack, but I don't want to hack my Kindle. I have only latin characters, and I can't find anything in Wikipedia, I can't search for Cyrillic books if I have any on my device (I have, huh).

It's very easy but great thing. If I'm able to add many dictionaries, why I'm not able to print with non-latin characters? If it's possible to add with hack, so it may be done officially, it's a great benefit for everyone.

Thank you.

they have added non Latin characters, but they're Chinese and Japanese - Amazon seems to be adding languages/character sets as they open up kindle stores in other countries

at least they have added the instant translation on the Kindle Paperwhite and Touch to enable translations from and into Russian (no Greek yet)

they're heading there - and it would really help if they were able to sell and ship Kindles to Russia

I'm not really sure new stores will be soon opened in exUSSR-countries, but there's a lot of people, who read or want to read in Cyrillic (someone is learning new languages). Dictionary and Translation are fine, but ability to input Cyrillic characters is very good ability. Is there any place I'm able to wrote something like "suggestions" or so?

Thank you CBRetriever for your answers.
