Question VLC non ascii filename


hello,
i have a few files with non ascii filenames. I think the filenames are in UTF8. But when i try to convert them in vlc (3.0.0-git) the filenames get all messed up.
Code:
[az@toshiba Music]$ locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=
[az@toshiba Music]$ ls
'Чи-Ли и Гоша Куценко - Сказки.webm'  'Чи-Ли - Маки.webm'                 'Чи-Ли - Омут.webm'
the screen-shot with vlc attached.

appreciate your input.

the workaround is to
Code:
convmv  --unescape  ./*.ogg
achieves the desired outcome.

the immediate outcome - issue solved.

but curiocity bug - why such an odd behaviour of vlc ? I read they use utf for 10ish years now....
