vagrant up doesn`t running Progress state: E_INVALIDARG VBoxManage.exe: error: Appliance import failed


Here is cmd error, I can't understand where is error and I'm bumping on it again and again, can`t solve it.

$ vagrant up
Bringing machine 'default' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
==> default: Preparing master VM for linked clones...
    default: This is a one time operation. Once the master VM is prepared,
    default: it will be used as a base for linked clones, making the creation
    default: of new VMs take milliseconds on a modern system.
==> default: Importing base box 'hashicorp/bionic64'...
There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant
for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below.

Command: ["import", "\\\\?\\C:\\HashiCorp\\boxes\\hashicorp-VAGRANTSLASH-bionic64\\1.0.282\\virtualbox\\box.ovf", "--vsys", "0", "--vmname", "ubuntu-18.04-amd64_1574870798285_57998", "--vsys", "0", "--unit", "11", "--disk", "C:/Users/\u256C\u044B\u0445\u0443/VirtualBox VMs/ubuntu-18.04-amd64_1574870798285_57998/ubuntu-18.04-amd64-disk001.vmdk"]
