Dear Dmitriy,
     How about the translation:

1 Cor 1:22-25: " . . . since also Jews request signs and Greeks seek
wisdom, but we on our part preach Christ crucified, (being) to Jews indeed
a scandal, and (being) foolishness to Greeks foolishness, but Christ
(being) to the called, Jews and Greeks, God's power and God's wisdom.

The second "Christ" would be a repetition of the first in case the reader
might lose track of the reference in the many words. There may be no need
to repeat the idea of "we preach." I have seen this repetition of an
earlier element for the sake of clarity in Hebrew. "Scandal" is in
apposition to "Christ crucified," as is "foolishness," as would be "God's
power" and "God's wisdom."
