To be honest I never considered using syslog for application programs.
I thought it is only used for system programs, services, ...

It is nevertheless very likely that the encoding is just ignored. Write
UTF-8 and you will be able to read your stuff in the log. If other
programs write KOI8-RU encoded text you will end with a log file with
different encoding. That's at least what I guess.
