Thanks for the recipe.  Please go to each "привет" in the test buffer
and type "C-u C-x =", then show what the *Help* buffer displays for
each of the two.

FWIW, I cannot reproduce this on my system: I see the same font being
used in both cases.  But maybe this is system-dependent in some ways,
or maybe the fonts you have installed affect this.  So I think you
should report all this (including the information I requested above)
as part of a bug report, using "M-x report-emacs-bug", and let's take
it from there.
