How to "cd" to a dir with cyrillic/russian folder name?

I have an english Windows 7 Home Premium.
On my system I have a sub-sub-dir with cyrillic folder name.

How can I change into this folder in CommandPrompt?

When I copy the full path from WinExplorer and type/paste it in CommandPrompt like:

D:\tmp>cd "D:\data\??????????"

then this is not possible because the cyrillic chars are replaced by "?" and CommandPrompt Windows 7 does not recognize the folder.

How else can I get into such a folder?

Can you rename the folder to an English name?

In the command prompt just type CD and press <TAB> repeatedly till you get the folder name.
