The default XCompose file defines several key sequences for typing the § symbol. One of these is:

<Multi_key> <Cyrillic_pe> <Cyrillic_a>  : "§"   section # SECTION SIGN

This appears to be an abbreviation for параграф. (Literally “paragraph” but apparently the Russian meaning is not so particular.)

The file does not define an analogous Cyrillic-script sequence for entering the ¶ symbol.
