My guess is you have to find a charset you both can interpret. Your message to the list has

    Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=koi8-r

I'm sure I've never seen that character set, and my MUA (Outlook97) has no idea what to do with it. If you can get the characters you need with one of the iso-8859 character sets, you're more likely to succeed, I think.
