You didn't deal with the issue at all. Vim installs files like 
/usr/share/man/ru.{KOI8-R,UTF-8}/man1/vim.1, which are not even looked upon by 
man-db. In short:

/usr/share/man/*.UTF-8 -> junk
/usr/share/man/*.something-else -> drop the .something-else suffix.


rm -rf /usr/share/man/ru.UTF-8
mv /usr/share/man/ru{.KOI8-R,}/man1/*
rm -rf /usr/share/man/ru.KOI8-R

But I would certainly prefer to do it not after installation, but as some patch 
to Vim's source.
