Whoa, long time since I last saw Kyrillic :)

So I can see the characters just fine, but that could be the mail
program automatically translating them (yeah, bells and whistles ;))

Anyways, you can use the 'recode' program[1] to convert between

i.e. try:

recode latin2..utf8 file

It is very pedantic, so for example if it already were utf8 or there are
any unrepresentable characters, it tells :) 

(Beware, modifies original file)

Good question :) I'd bet it is utf-8.
Can you program? If so, put the text in a gtk_label_new ("blah"); string
and see if it displays fine.
I think gtk only can do utf-8, so that would help knowing :)
*hides in case someone wants to hit me for that probably wrong
