Machine have ru_RU.UTF-8 locale. At least it is generated by glibc's
(v2.12.1) 'localedef' and it is shown in 'locale -a' output list. And I
didn't have any locale issues before except for vile behaviour.

I discovered that then I run vile with C locale: 
LANG=C vile
it writes '[Key not bound]' under 'ru' keyboard layout in normal mode.

When run with en_GB.UTF-8 locale it acts the same as with ru_RU.UTF-8
