Internal site serach decoding bug

Hello! We have site in russian language and all working fine except internal site serch keywords.
E.g. when I try to find ‘окрб’ this keyword turns to urlencoded ‘q=%EE%EA%F0%E1’ and then in database it turns to some wierd encoded string ’ îêðá’.
Is there a way to exactly specify that my site search keywords is url encoded in windows-1251 code?
