You don't need to edit the files with a text editor, you don't have to
use the values suggested from the drop down list, you can type any
value you like into the respective input field in YaST2.

Your are right that only ru_RU.KOI8-R works with X applications.
I.e. this is a mistake in the drop-down list of the possible locales.
There is another mistake, "gl_ES.utf-8" doesn't work either,
it should be "gl_ES.UTF-8".
