wine an other language characters

When using wine to run a program I switch to map my keyboard to use characters from Russia and all everything displays is a bunch of "<<<<", one "<" for each character. What can I do?

Sorry, I'm going to ask some obvious questions here.

Do you have the correct cyrillic fonts installed?

Does cyrillic work in other programs (i.e. when not running wine)?

If yes, how did you configure your computer to switch between the two keymaps?

(For example, I changed my settings in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4(5), but I think there are several different ways to do it.)

Have you read this thread?

I use kubuntu. There is an icon in the system try that shows a flag for the languages. I simply change the flag to Russian and all letters are russian in other programs. I have been playing arround with the fonts and have noticed there are some fonts that don't seem to display Russian characters correctly and some fonts that do. Using a program such as kwrite I am able to have both russian and english characters all in one file.

Maby perhaps the sollution is changing the default font used in textboxes for wine? I don't know how to do this.

Thank you
