Sadly, the TeX Gyre people were forced to remove the Valek's Cyrillic
glyphs due to license issues. They write:
For reasons explained elsewhere, we prefer to provide our work under
the GUST Font Licence (GFL) which is legally equivalent to the LPPL.
However, since 1996 the 35 PostScript base fonts were enhanced under
the GNU Public License with Vietnamese glyphs by Han The Thanh and
Cyrillic glyphs by Valek Filippov. Han The Thanh kindly permitted
his additions to be retained under GFL/LPPL in this and future TeX
Gyre fonts releases. Unfortunately, we were unable to receive a
similar permission from Valek Filippov for his Cyrillic glyphs, thus
there are no Cyrillic glyphs in any of the TeX Gyre fonts.
Valek, could you shed some light on this issue?
