How to convert HTTP query to UTF-8?

I’m able to get any HTTP GET/POST query, However, only in ASCII mode.
When I entered the text á’ in an input field, I got at my server the text ‘’. Apparently I have to convert the text ‘%40’ into ‘@’ via chr(int(‘40’, 16)).
But what about the text ‘украї́нська’, because I got at my server the text ‘%D0%A3%D0%BA%D1%80%D0%B0%D1%97%D0%BD%D0%B0’? How can I convert it?

Is this what you need?

from urllib.parse import unquote
url = "%D0%A3%D0%BA%D1%80%D0%B0%D1%97%D0%BD%D0%B0"

What to do now without using Flask temporarily?

As for Flask, I will still have to study it. After that, I will try it, if I like it.

This is because your terminal either does not support displaying those characters, or is not properly configured to display them. Please see for example Python, Unicode, and the Windows console - Stack Overflow.

Yep! That’s the code I want, because it contains only two statements. It really works perfectly. Thank you very much for your excellent help!
