Vile in normal mode interprets keypresses made in non-us layout (e.g.
utf-8 cyrillic) as a sequence of us (latin) keypresses and does random
actions or sets 'arg: ' to some huge values. This behaviour makes
confusion when editing. I think that vile should ignore such keypresses.

vile should...

This sounds like a special case which I thought I'd fixed: if your machine doesn't have the corresponding ru_RU locale data installed, then vile may have incomplete information on the locale.

Is that the case?

(I can think of some ways to develop a solution for that)

It occurs both on text console and xterm. Vi ( and vim
ignore keypresses made in non-us layout.

Information that may be useful:
Locale: ru_RU.UTF-8
Console keymap: ruwin_cplk_UTF-8
X layout: ru(winkeys)
