"result file" is ~/.Xmodmap. Open in with text editor (I suggest Alt+F2,
then kwrite ~/.Xmodmap) and find string with "Cyrrilic_che". Cut it and
"Cyrillic_CHE" from assignment. Then paste to another keycode, which you
feel more comfortable, then save.
To get keycode for a key, run "xev" utility in a terminal, press key to
test(focus should be in xev window) and then find line with "keycode" in
a terminal where you launched xev from.

Nothing changed, because you file ~/.Xmodmap remained untouched. No need
Try the command again(ensure there is a space between xmodmap and it's
argument "~/.Xmodmap"), after you have edited ~/.Xmodmap and changed
