While using Codeforces API I found out that method 'user.ratedList' returns names in English even with setting parameter 'lang' to 'ru'.

r = requests.get('//codeforces.com/api/user.ratedList', params = {'lang' : 'ru'})
users = json.loads(r.text)['result']

Codeforces doesn't allow using a dot in the handle but there are several users with dots (for example Jeffrey). How is it possible?
