It appears that all Cyrillic text in my bookmarks file has been
corrupted. I wasn't able to reproduce such a corruption using emacsĀ -Q,
so probably this is due to interference with my settings which I will
have to investigate. But in my opinion there is a problem with
bookmark.el as well since it ignores completely coding system when
saving bookmarks. Thus I have written the following two advices to fix
its behavior. It seems that they work as needed.

(advice-add 'bookmark-write-file :around
            #'(lambda (f &rest args)
                (let ((coding-system-for-write (or coding-system-for-write 
                  (apply f args)))
            '((name . "coding")))

(advice-add 'bookmark-insert-file-format-version-stamp :before
            #'(lambda (&rest args)
                (when coding-system-for-write
                  (insert (format "\
;;;; Emacs Bookmark Format Version %d ;;;;
;;; -*- coding: %S -*-\n"
            '((name . "coding")))

Besides, although desktop.el specifies coding system in its file, it is
old one - emacs-mule. Shouldn't this be utf-8-emacs these days instead?

With best regards
