Support forum topics with Cyrillic titles cannot be found via Google

None of the topics with Cyrillic titles on ru.forums.wordpress.org can be found via Google. Topics with Latin slugs are indexed properly. Same for the other forums in Cyrillic (bg.forums.wordpress.org and sr.forums.wordpress.org).
This wasn't a big issue three years ago when there were just a few posts, but now that more and more questions are asked and answered each day, it's hard for users to find previous topics and solutions.
According to Otto, there's no robots.txt or anything else blocking Google from indexing them.
This is probably a Google bug, but I've tried to ask on their Help forum, and no one replied.
My guess is this has to do with 4th-level domains currently used for localized support forums. In this case, wouldn't it be possible to switch from ru.forums.wordpress.org to ru.wordpress.org/support/, similarly to English support forums?
