And it in fact, does munge it.

As in, it transcodes: into UTF-8. W/out figuring out the
correct cyrillization. After conversion to UTF-8, there is now no way
to recover the correct alphabet, w/out messing with it via iconv.

For comparison, the non-proxied one is attached.

In the lower registers, yes. In the upper ones, no.
Because it is really Cyrillyc-1251.
