Some of these books are unvailable in general bookstores... Anyway, you should be able to find them in several online second-hand bookstores or through Amazon (just follow the link). You could find some russian books on eBay. I would firmly advise you to compare prices before buying the book you are so desperately looking for... sometimes it could be twice the normal price.

Among websites you could check :
for French books : (in French), usually expensive. (in English/French) (in French)

for English books :
Amazon, large selection of new and second-hand books (in English) (in English/French), large selection. (in English) (in English/German) (in English) book search and price comparison - some weird results sometimes. (in English) book search and price comparison - really useful if you have isbn.
