Shift Tab is not working in TTY. KEYMAP problem?

Hi everyone,

I check the Shift-Tab by solution at
And I have such behavior. In my default configuration

╭─sly-arch@sly-sub  ~ 
╰─$ localectl status
   System Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8
       VC Keymap: ru-utf
      X11 Layout: n/a

When I press Ctrl+V Shift-Tab I have real tab, nothing like ^[ didn't appeared.

When I execute

╭─sly-arch@sly-sub  ~ 
╰─$ sudo loadkeys us
Loading /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/

And again press Ctrl+V Shift-Tab I have ^[ in the console.

After this I understood that issue in the keymap.

If I execute load such keymap via loadkeys:

╭─sly-arch@sly-sub  ~ 
╰─$ cat 
Shift keycode 15 = F100# Shift-Tab (or BackTab)
string F100   = "\033[Z"

everything will be work in TTY as is should be.

1. Is it a bug and need to open it?
2. How to resolve this in correct way? Change the used keymap (in this case ru-utf)?

Best Regards,
