I quite solved my problem switching to another terminal: roxterm. It handles well utf-8 and lets me type any language in the same terminal. The only bad thing is that it allows you to choose only one font. Seen that good chinese fonts usually are bad at displaying latin script and vice-versa, I had to create two different profiles that I need to switch when I need to see either latin or cyrillic letters on one side and chinese characters on the other displayed in a more readable way. Mltem on the other hand lets you specivy different fonts for "biwidth".
But no big deal now I'm quite happy with roxterm, it is in the packages, no building from source, it just works well.
I might come back to this mlterm story in the future, but kind of doubt it.
thank you all for helping out!
