How does WordPress handle foreign character sets?

I’ve been adding some files to a client’s website and one of them has a title including Cyrillic characters. All of those characters got changed into “?” characters on save.

Is there a native mechanism in WordPress that will enable it to display this character set with minimum fuss? Do I need a plugin?
