HTML DECODE function in Apex class

Hi

any body knows how to decode the HTML code into text in apex class.

Let me explain my scenario, I have a api call from external system, In that api call they are encoding the scepical charaters it looks like below.

"firstName": "Ришат",
"lastName": "Гатаулин",

I want to decode this character in to text and store the values in contact object. Currently it is storing with this character. It is not decoding the character.

does anybody have solutions for this.
