The stix2 fonts support neither OT2 nor T2A. Also using cp1251 is not the best way to type multilingual documents nowadays.

It's much better if you first convert your document to UTF-8 and then switch to T2A for Cyrillic text.

A good substitute for a Times-like font such as STIX2 is Tempora.

\documentclass[12pt,twocolumn]{article}
\usepackage[T1,T2A]{fontenc}
\usepackage[english, russian]{babel}
\usepackage{stix2}

\DeclareFontFamilySubstitution{T2A}{stix2}{Tempora-TLF}

\begin{document}

\pretolerance=0
\hyphenpenalty=-5000

The strange settings before the Russian text are just to make hyphenation more desirable, in order to show that it's applied correctly.
