Problem with POI on Linux

Hello, everyone!
I have encountered such a problem with metadata extraction: poi library extracts metadata from office files as unreadable symbols.

In some files I have metadata written in English. It is extracted correctly. However, when metadata (for example document title or description) is written in Russian, Alfresco fails to extract it correctly.

Firstly, I had such a problem both on Windows (I am using win 200 server) and on Linux. I managed to cope with this problem on Windows by setting the  system locale to Russian. Both English and Russian metadata were extracted correctly.  Then I set the locale on Linux (/etc/sysconfig/i18n) to "ru_RU.UTF-8". However the problem remains - metadata is not exctracted correctly  :(

I would be grateful if you could help me to solve this problem.
Thanks in advance.
