Encoding error

I create scaffold and trying to save text with cirllic symbols
i recieved:
Encoding::UndefinedConversionError: U+043F from UTF-8 to US-ASCII:
my database charset is utf8
in database.yml encoding:utf8
why rails is still trying to convert text to ascii?
what should i do to save my data in utf8?

What is it that raises this error ? If for example you were writing
data to a file you would need to make sure that the file was opened
with the correct encoding set. Another problem that can occur is if
you have a utf8 string that has come from your database but you then
perform some operation with a string literal. Unless your files have a
magic encoding comment at the top, that string literal will default to
ASCII.

     Difficult to know where exactly is the problem, I work with latin symbols and after many encodings problems, I always convert the files to utf-8 (without bom) and add the magic comment "# encoding: UTF-8" to all the ".rb" and ".erb" files.
