RUSSIAN FONTS

Download the fonts PT Astra Sans and PT Astra Serif

When preparing the documents, the implementation of Times New Roman foreign proprietary font is specified according to requirements of government authorities and other agencies. The use of this font in the operating systems different from MS Windows requires the appropriate license contract with the right holder–Monotype Imaging Inc. company (USA) and provides the cash transfers for each used font. Besides, in relation of sanctions policy pursued towards the Russian Federation, the conclusion of this license contract became impossible.

For import substitution and conversion to domestic IT technologies of JSC "RPA RusBITech"- developer of the OS "Astra Linux" and LLC RPA "ParaType"– developer of national fonts, they present the Russian free-for-all fonts (PT Astra Sans and PT Astra Serif) that are metric analogs of foreign font Times New Roman. The use of these fonts instead of Times New Roman doesn’t lead to document distortion, and freeware distribution and cross-platform combined with modern design make them available and user-friendly in the any operating systems and office program.
