Obviously, Fail2Ban SHOULD use day of week and month names only in English as required by RFC (
As a workaround if you're using fail2ban package in Debian-based distro you may add LANG="en_US" line to your /etc/default/fail2ban to force en_US locale for fail2ban process and get proper timestamps.

Update: The bug was fixed in newer versions.
