I made a character switch animation using AE.

 

It looks like this: text anim 

 

I want to add some russian characters to this animation (example : A->F->Ж->Ъ->N) or I want to select specific unicode characters to switch between. Is that possible to do it?

It's certainly possible, but not directly. Accessing alternate character sets in Unicode fonts usually requires some mucking around with string.fromCharCode() and similar in expressions, with the real caveat being that the offsets can literally cover almost the 50000 characters in an OpenType font, assuming they are there in the first place. This is hugely impractical so you may want to explore other methods liek simply using multiple layers and having them transition via some random characters, masking and opacity animators, even more so since it's not mandatory to have all character sets in a font and you may end up hitting a lot of blanks, which just looks naff during animation.
