Comment(by Ragnaripea):

 Ok, we managed to find a "solution" for it. I'm not sure if this is the
 proper way to do it and it might mess up some other stuff but for what we
 needed it, it's working.

 In query.php (/wp-includes), add the piece of code specified on next line

 function parse_query($query) {

 It's (in 3.0 beta 2) on line 1246.

 The code that did the job:

 if ( !$query['name'] && !$query['pagename'] && $query['category_name']) {

 I'm no programmer and I really have no idea what's the magic behind it but
 it's working. Working as in you can use cyrillic (most probably all other
 non-latin alphabets, too) slugs perfectly both on posts and pages with the
 /%postname% /%category%/%postname% permalinks (we're using the last one).
 No /%year% is needed to make it work.

 Smart guys out here probably know what's going on when looking at this
 code, so they can either improve it or if it's known to cause some issues,
 tell us here that it's not working and shouldn't be used.
