The problem with evergreens is that by the time damage can be seen in the foliage, it has been months maybe a year since the problem started. General information is that Russian cypress are known to be relatively free of common pests and diseases, although root rot is mentioned in some of the literature. They do like consistent moisture. Was there a dry spell last summer? What changes have taken place from the normal conditions?
You may consider having a local certified arborist inspect and provide diagnosis.
