I try to set Russian hyphenation for polyglossia/xelatex (I use pandoc

I've installed two packages:

$ tlmgr info hyphen-russian
tlmgr: package repository http://ctan.asis.io/systems/texlive/tlnet
package:     hyphen-russian
category:    TLCore
shortdesc:   Russian hyphenation patterns.
longdesc:    Hyphenation patterns for Russian in T2A and UTF-8 encodings. For 8-bit engines, the 'ruhyphen' package provides a number of different pattern sets, as well as different (8-bit) encodings, that can be chosen at format-generation time.  The UTF-8 version only provides the default pattern set.  A mechanism similar to the one used for 8-bit patterns may be implemented in the future.

I have a book in Russian and English. But I see hyphenation for English words only, not for Russian ones. How can I fix it?

I use the last BasicTeX for OS X.

    I mean should I set hyphenation for Russian explicitly? I didn't do it for English, but hyphenation works perfectly... – Denis Shevchenko Mar 17 '16 at 14:04

    I've read in Polyglossia package manual that this package Loading the appropriate hyphenation patterns automatically. But it loads the only hyphenation patterns for English, not for Russian. – Denis Shevchenko Mar 17 '16 at 15:15
