Cyrillic for Wine (OSX)

Recently i had to use a windows app on my MacBook that was packed into a bundled app with Wine inside. Because i had to also run some Cyrillic applets within the app, i had to adjust the encoding accordingly. Otherwise, all Russian text was unreadable.

It took me just a few minutes to google the solution:

LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8

However, then i had to find a place to apply the fix. In my case, i explored ‘Contents’ folder of the app and found the bash script that starts that windows program using Wine. I added the flag to the script and now it works like a charm.
