retitle 376414 Please use UTF-8 encoding for Russian in console-cyrillic

Yes. Nice proof of the very weak testing given by users and
translators to the installer. It's now mor ethan 6 months since we
switched to UTF-8 everywhere and this is discovered...now.

Anywa, thanks a lot for reporting this. The fix is pretty easy.

Seems to be the same problem.

Here, the problem is not related to the installer. I guess this is the
job of the printing system, if configured to use /dev/lp*, to load the
needed module(s).
