Assuming your copy of TIR_____.PFB really has cyrillic (I am a bit
   suspicious because mine doesn't, and Adobe's website says that the
   character set for "Times Std" is "Adobe Western 2", and that
   charset doesn't contain cyrillic at all.
   But I could be wrong and/or just confused by the file name):

The most likely problem is that you do not have a correct .enc file
(the log of the t2a-adobe-timescyr.tex pdftex run would definately
