Unfortunately, I do not know where you can find the text of Russian 
copyright legislation in English. The text of all Russian law in IP are 
available at www.ipmenu.com
However, the documents there are available only in Russian.

I will try to find out whether there are any other web sites containitng the 
information you are interested in.
In any case, the employment contract is reflected not only in Russian 
Copyright law but also in Russian software law (Art. 12 of Russian software 
law states that "all economic rights on the computer programs made in the 
course of employment belong to the employeer unless the contract stipulates 
the opposite"). Only and ONLY if the contract between the employeer and the 
employee stipulates the opposite the employee may have economic rights but 
that does not happen normally.
