I have the following table, which holds both Russian and English titles and articles:

Code MySQL:
CREATE TABLE `articles` (
 `id` tinyint(3) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,
 `date` date default NULL,
 `en_title` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
 `ru_title` varchar(100) character set cp1251 NOT NULL,
 `en_content` mediumtext NOT NULL,
 `ru_content` mediumtext NOT NULL,
 PRIMARY KEY  (`id`)

When I insert a new row, the Russian text is converted into nonsense like "??????". As you can see, that column is set to CP1251. I tried using UTF8 (ru_content in above table), but that still returns things like "цуа...".

I appreciate any help. Thank you!
