There is some code in lib/dia_xml.c (around line 134) which tries

there are no bytes found where the MSB is set it assumes
well formed utf8. In you case this is plain wrong.
Placing the correct encoding like:

for german on win32. I don't know the correct encoding
string for russian on Linux ...

But if you prepare a file which has the offending bits set
(without an encoding definition) Dia will complain about 
the missing encoding and will show what it assumes to be the

You could also apply the attached patch, which does not
