Problem in Wine with Russian Fonts or Codepages


While trying to run a program in Wine , I encountered a problem with russian alphabet. There are 2 scenarios:

1. when I start the program in such a way:
wine start run.bat
it displays the charcters in that way



as you see the program is using pseudo-graphics...

2.when I start the program in such a way:
LANG=ru_RU.CP1251 wine start run.bat
[as far as I understand using the RU locale]
This is what I got:


As you can see, now it's the Cyrillic alphabet, but also someproblem persists...

in both cases in the Terminal is displayed the following error:
:WineEngCreateFontInstance Untranslated charset 255
May that could help in solving the problem...
What I have already done:
1. Copied the Windows fonts in the Wine's Fonts folder[Windows/Fonts]
2. Generated the locales for RU
3. Copied the fonts in /usr/share/fonts
And as you see - No Results!

Please help me solving it!!!:(
