Times New Roman, Arial and a number of other fonts are no longer available in Russia

/ Events /

The American company Monotype has restricted Russians' access to the library of fonts it owns. We are talking about Times New Roman, Arial, Verdana and Helvetica.

About this writes Republicworld citing Russian media.

Currently known, Monotype's website is still available, but when you try to open a page with the above fonts, you get a message about access restrictions.

"The site owner may have set restrictions that prevent you from accessing the site," the website says.

So far, the company has not made any official statements on the matter and refused to comment on its actions to the Russian media.

It is worth noting that in 2014, Monotype refused to grant permission to use its fonts after Russia was sanctioned for the annexation of Crimea.

At that time, the restrictions primarily affected some Russian organizations working in the interests of the state, in particular, software developers of the Russian Defense Ministry.
