The Subject line contains "=?iso-8859-1?Q?=A0?=": That's a
non-breakable space U+00A0 " ".
If you see a semigraphic char, probably the double horizontal bar
U+2550 "═" (coded A0 in KOI8-R), this only means locale and $charset are
incorrectly set to Latin-1 when your terminal's real charset is KOI8-R.
On a KOI8-R terminal in a KOI8-R locale and $charset, Mutt will
convert this for display to a non-breakable space coded 9A in KOI8-R.
This is good, Mutt behaves correctly. But your terminal wrongly
interprets the 9A as some SCI control char it is not. The xterm -k8
option should be a solution for you. Or a terminal automatically using
control or printable chars where they are in the used charset.

But KOI8-R has printable chars everywhere in the 80-FF range, be it
Cyrillic, semigraphics, or other symbols. Not a single control char
there. I believe that's what Thomas meant.
And KOI-8 not -R has no Cyrillic IO nor char FF. Also no control
