As far as I understood, there can be no koi8-r there because data in LDAP is stored in UTF-8 and my locale is UTF-8 too (koi8-r is used only for encoding mail).

I saw there a place:

#define BALSA_CODESET "ISO-8859-1"

I think that it is a place which kills russian characters. When I changed it to UTF-8 I saw that everything works fine. But I don't know what's the proper character set for Balsa. Either it is UTF-8 or it is locale-dependent.
