Of course they are. Majority of CP866 in Russia in purely a Fidonet phenomenon,
and the sites you visited were web sites. That's like fghi.pp.ru defaulted to
read Fidonet messages as CP866 (unless CHRS-specified otherwise) until recently
but presented them as UTF-8 in the Web.
With best Fidonet 2.0 regards,
