wget crashes on downloading non-ASCII resources

wget (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Is it possible to bump wget in Xenial to 1.18 or greater, it has an important change(from Changelog):

* When Wget is built with libiconv, it now converts non-ASCII URIs to
  the locale's codeset when it creates files. The encoding of the
  remote files and URIs is taken from --remote-encoding, defaulting to
  UTF-8. The result is that non-ASCII URIs and files downloaded via
  HTTP/HTTPS and FTP will have names on the local filesystem that
  correspond to their remote names.

Which fixes incorrect filenames for non-ASCII files like that(sorry, you cannot download the url, it is only available in my country):
