It's not printing garbage, and it couldn't print Г Ё Ф if UTF8 didn't work.

I think your printer just doesn't have Russian characters for that typeface.

I'm not intimately familiar with AIX's printing system or HP's printers, but what I'd do first is find out more about the printer, see if it'll tell you what fonts and regions it has installed. If it has no fonts for your region at all you'll need to upload or install one somehow.
