In a generic search Google understands transliteration and if I wrote some words using Latin letters but in a non-English language ( for instance phrase "red cat" in Russian using transliteration will be "krasnii kot" ) will Google suggest this phrase in Cyrillic and do a search in Russian texts?

Thinking in terms of a web shop and that the URLs for product pages contain transliteration, will Google index them as well?

Since Google returns completely different search results for красный Кот and krasnyy kot (this is the transliteration that Google gives), I would guess that Google treats them separately. – Michael Hampton May 9 '14 at 23:30
