Calibre doesn't display UTF8 characters

I have a recipe that brings pages with UTF8 characters.
Calibre viewer shows them like this: лет
Each UTF8 in this case is 2-byte and bytes are shown one by one.

How to enable correct display of UTF8 characters?

utf-8 should be the default. My guess is the recipe is specifying a different encoding. Try adding an encoding meta tag:

Code:
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
...
</head>
Also, check that there isn't one already being set in the output.
