There was no such bug in NWN Diamond so it's definitely regression.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Put Russian fonts from attached archive into overwrite folder.
2. Load up any module to get into game.
3. Enter йцукен in the chat or whatever using Russian keyboard locale.

Expected result: йцукен appear in the chat input field.
Actual result: PCPPPC appear in the chat input field. Basically every single Cyrillic character is replaced by P and C.

Users also mention there's an issue with Spanish Ñ, see https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/67565/con-n-de-espana-allow-language-special-chars#latest : language-specific letters should be possible to use in the chat.

Today I noticed this bug too.
We can't write russian characters in player names, player biography, familiar names, journal notes and chat. (In original version of NWN it possible)
I hope that it will fixed in near update. Thank you!
