An image of a post envelope with address written in krakozyabry (кракозя́бры) AKA Mojibake. The envelope contained a Harry Potter book. This letter was sent to a Russian student by her French friend, who manually wrote the address that she received by e-mail. Her e-mail client, unfortunately, was not set up correctly to display Cyrillic characters, so they were substituted with diacritic symbols from the Western charset (ISO-8859-1) The original message was in KOI8-R.

The address was deciphered by the postal employees and delivered successfully. Some of the correct characters (red) were written above the wrong ones (black).
