In such cases, I answer the phone and say nothing. This usually confuses the cold caller but people who know me just speak. So it seems to work.
On those occasions when I bother to answer I always speak in English. If the caller doesn't understand, that's not my problem: I'm at home, I speak English.

That usually gets rid of them pretty quickly, although as the OP has observed, it's very annoying when they just hang up without a word of apology.
