"Invalid file type" TP-LINK ARCHER A7 v5 RU

Hey guys! Few days ago I bought this router. Tried to flash it via web GUI but it fails with "Invalid file type" error, no matter how I name the file. Via TFTP, the situation is as follows:

  1. Router downloads my firmware
  2. Router does NOT flash it
    Anyone can help?

Probably some version magic that needs adjusting. The wiki doesn't list the Russian version as supported at this point:

More mysterious is the fact, that it refuses to flash(via both methods) a stock official TP-LINK Firmware.

Already saw this post by myself.
Anyway, I returned this router, as the USB port appeared to be not working.
