All I did was replace FreeFonts and DejaVu fonts with Georgia, Gentium and in some cases Andale Mono as test as they have good Cyrillic coverage. Acro Reader 7.08 opens the exported file fine.

To be honest, a lot of the fonts shipped with Mandrake/Mandrivia are not really high quality print fonts. I have seen issue with FreeFonts before as well. You might want to try the latest DejaVu fonts release, as there were many kerning fixes in the last release. has a bit more explanation and some recommended fonts.
