Suggested correction: Cyrillic bears similarities to Greek, Slavic, Russian, and some Middle-Eastern lettering. Considering the tattoo was on the decomposing skin of a body that had been submerged in water, it's reasonable to assume it would be difficult for anyone to recognise. Also, nothing is ever mentioned about Scully's education to suggest she should have any particular knowledge about multi-cultural writing styles, the most we know is that she had a decent grasp of German.

Duane Barry (1) - S2-E5

Other mistake: An agent and Scully analyze the fragment taken out from Duane Berry's body. The agent draws Scully's attention to "small markings", which are half a monitor size, and Scully naively asks where they are.
