Notice the 'git add test_й'. The problem is that git reports it as untracked.

Михаил, is this the whole output or do you also see a
differently-escaped version of the filename under tracked files? Does
this problem not show up if you use 'git add -A' or 'git add .' instead
of typing the name? If so, this happens because HFS+ stores and reports
names differently than the way we told it to store it, so git sees a
different set of bytes than what it's expecting and considers it a
different file.

With a recent version of git, you can set the core.precomposeunicode
config setting to true, which deals with this situation. This tells git
to transform the data it gets from the filesystem to the format that
everyone else uses, which helps not only this, but also the 'git add .'
case, so git stores the filename in the format the same way that other
OSs expect to find.
