My experience:

conhostv2+cmd: Shift+Ins -> ŕ
conhostv2+cmd: Alt+234 -> ŕ

conhostv2+cygwin260+bash: Shift+Ins -> ŕ
conhostv2+cygwin260+bash: Alt+234 -> ŕ

conhostv2+cygwin261+bash: Shift+Ins -> ŕ
conhostv2+cygwin261+bash: Alt+234 -> 
(i.e. nothing)
conhostv2+cygwin261+bash: Alt+5 -> [G
(if there's nothing written yet on the input line, Alt+5 also causes what seems to be ~10-second delay in input processing)

mintty+cygwin261+bash: Shift+Ins -> ŕ
mintty+cygwin261+bash: Alt+234 -> ê
