It does.
But limited to character sets that are bijections between codepoints
and actual glyphs (1)  and limited to left to right.

(1): well some combining characters work too, like thati for example.

So, you can use utf-8 with current gtk for cyrillic, latin, greek, chinese,
thai, japanese, etc...

but not for indic, arabic, hebrew.

You just need to carefully choose the iso10646-1 font you want
in your /etc/gtkrc.xxxx file to use one that does have the wanted glyphs.
