Urldecode non english (latin) urls

Hi guys.

I am using the urldecode create (https://docs.rs/urldecode/0.1.1/urldecode/index.html) to decode a url.

The url contains the name of a file in greek.

The result I am getting is not correct.

Rust result: "ΠΡÎΣÎ+ÎÎÎÎΣ+ÎÎÎÎΦÎΡÎÎÎ+ΠΡÎÎÎÎÎ+Î¥ÎÎÎΩÎÎÎ+ΣΧÎÎ+ΤÎΡÎÎ+ÎÎÎÎΣ+ÎÎ .pdf"

Python3 result: "ΠΡΟΣΚΛΗΣΗ+ΕΚΔΗΛΩΣΗΣ+ΕΝΔΙΑΦΕΡΟΝΤΟΣ+ΓΙΑ+ΠΡΟΜΗΘΕΙΑ+ΥΑΛΟΠΙΝΑΚΩΝ+ΓΙΑ+ΣΧΟΛΙΚΑ+ΚΤΙΡΙΑ+ΒΘΜΙΑΣ+ΕΚΠ.pdf"

I am sure this is an encoding issue, but I did not manage to find a solution for this.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thanx in advance.

Rust code:

let url = "%CE%A0%CE%A1%CE%9F%CE%A3%CE%9A%CE%9B%CE%97%CE%A3%CE%97+%CE%95%CE%9A%CE%94%CE%97%CE%9B%CE%A9%CE%A3%CE%97%CE%A3+%CE%95%CE%9D%CE%94%CE%99%CE%91%CE%A6%CE%95%CE%A1%CE%9F%CE%9D%CE%A4%CE%9F%CE%A3+%CE%93%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%A0%CE%A1%CE%9F%CE%9C%CE%97%CE%98%CE%95%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%A5%CE%91%CE%9B%CE%9F%CE%A0%CE%99%CE%9D%CE%91%CE%9A%CE%A9%CE%9D+%CE%93%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%A3%CE%A7%CE%9F%CE%9B%CE%99%CE%9A%CE%91+%CE%9A%CE%A4%CE%99%CE%A1%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%92%CE%98%CE%9C%CE%99%CE%91%CE%A3+%CE%95%CE%9A%CE%A0.pdf";
let urlDecodedString = urldecode::decode(url.to_owned());

Python3 code:

urllib.parse.unquote("%CE%A0%CE%A1%CE%9F%CE%A3%CE%9A%CE%9B%CE%97%CE%A3%CE%97+%CE%95%CE%9A%CE%94%CE%97%CE%9B%CE%A9%CE%A3%CE%97%CE%A3+%CE%95%CE%9D%CE%94%CE%99%CE%91%CE%A6%CE%95%CE%A1%CE%9F%CE%9D%CE%A4%CE%9F%CE%A3+%CE%93%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%A0%CE%A1%CE%9F%CE%9C%CE%97%CE%98%CE%95%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%A5%CE%91%CE%9B%CE%9F%CE%A0%CE%99%CE%9D%CE%91%CE%9A%CE%A9%CE%9D+%CE%93%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%A3%CE%A7%CE%9F%CE%9B%CE%99%CE%9A%CE%91+%CE%9A%CE%A4%CE%99%CE%A1%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%92%CE%98%CE%9C%CE%99%CE%91%CE%A3+%CE%95%CE%9A%CE%A0.pdf")

The urldecode crate is not implemented correctly. Use percent-encoding instead.

fn main() {
    let url = "%CE%A0%CE%A1%CE%9F%CE%A3%CE%9A%CE%9B%CE%97%CE%A3%CE%97+%CE%95%CE%9A%CE%94%CE%97%CE%9B%CE%A9%CE%A3%CE%97%CE%A3+%CE%95%CE%9D%CE%94%CE%99%CE%91%CE%A6%CE%95%CE%A1%CE%9F%CE%9D%CE%A4%CE%9F%CE%A3+%CE%93%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%A0%CE%A1%CE%9F%CE%9C%CE%97%CE%98%CE%95%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%A5%CE%91%CE%9B%CE%9F%CE%A0%CE%99%CE%9D%CE%91%CE%9A%CE%A9%CE%9D+%CE%93%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%A3%CE%A7%CE%9F%CE%9B%CE%99%CE%9A%CE%91+%CE%9A%CE%A4%CE%99%CE%A1%CE%99%CE%91+%CE%92%CE%98%CE%9C%CE%99%CE%91%CE%A3+%CE%95%CE%9A%CE%A0.pdf";
    let url_decoded_string = percent_encoding::percent_decode(url.as_bytes()).decode_utf8().unwrap();
    println!("{}", url_decoded_string);
}
