I have the files in windows showned correctly, I see the words in cyrillic but in MB they are not written correctly, they are "weird symbols"  = Áðàòå ñëàâÿíå
What can I do please
After tens of hours of searching and still very puzzeled (foobar user)
Pardon me if an question has already been adressed in this forum

Got 90TB of music / I use computer view (tree structure)  for now
because "Genre" tags are 50% of the time wrong. And browse for folders marked by me as genres is faster

If you mean how they are displayed in the MB library, be sure the tags are either ID3v2.3 with UTF-16 encoding, or ID3.v2.4 with UTF-8.  ID3v1 tags do not support unicode.  It might be easier to do this (check/change the tag encoding) using a tagging tool like Mp3Tag or TagScanner, and re-scan them in MusicBee afterwards.
