Ok, here they are :)

1. AfterStep works with russian locale cp1251 (don't know about koi8-r)
only if I run it with "-L CP1251" command line option.

The real and correct value of $LANG is ru_RU.CP1251 (or ru_RU.KOI8-R).
May be you need some parsing of getenv("LANG")?

2. Even with "-L CP1251" I cant see russian letters in winlist bar and
in pager hints. But everything is perfect in window captions and menu
lines. (See http://194.85.80.10/as/scr1.jpg)

Menu captions are really good with default fancy font, but only in latin
symbols. I dont know any free unicode font with many national glyphs and
   similar look. This is a real problem of Linux/Unix community :(

3. I get some problems with xterm caption. See 
http://194.85.80.10/as/scr2.jpg .
May be this is a trouble of my system, but in "classic Afterstep"
everything is OK.
