Your post is not about re, but about encoding, next time
be more careful when choosing topic for your post!
Did you check what pep0263 says about encoding?
One of the first thins it says is:

Defining the Encoding
Python will default to ASCII as standard encoding if no other
     encoding hints are given.

So when you're using non ASCII characters you should always
specify encoding. Here again, read pep0263 for how this can
be done, especially section Defining Encoding, where there
are multiple ways of doing that.
