The issue could be solved by installing the latest version of network adapter drivers. After installing drivers, the name of the network adapter became Latin. No cyrillic letters are present.

This problem may appear in other instances if the network adapter drivers contain cyrillic characters as the name of the device.

Also, verify that the OS and OS language are fully supported per the System Requirements guide of the respective version.
