Is there a workaround to fix this behaviour before the developers find
the proper solution?

I think there are a few possible.

arial black:pixelsize=16:foundry=monotype:weight=medium:slant=r:width=normal

is a specification from libfontconfig2. You could edit /etc/fonts/ fonts.conf (or the equivalent on your system) to make it know all font resources of your system (and don't forget 'sudo fc-cache'). You could also try to find a TrueType or OpenType font with all four variants (regular, bold, italic, bold-italic) that has well-shaped mono-spaced Cyrillic and Latin glyphs. You can set this font as the default font. (fc-list :lang=ru, or such, could reveal the fonts with some Cyrillic support.)

You could create a fontset that specifies Latin and Cyrillic and Unicode encodings. Then make this fontset the default.

You could set LANG or LC_CTYPE to the proper value? Or use prefer- coding-system?

You could launch GNU Emacs with --disable-font-backend. It will show a slightly different behaviour.

It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.
