This package provides a standard set of character-cell low-resolution Cyrillic fonts. These are CP1251 (microsoft-cp1251) fonts and support all current slavic Cyrillic scripts. In most cases it is desirable to have the X font server (xfs) and/or an X server installed to make the fonts available to X clients.
The upstream source of this package is the package Xcyr of Serge Winitzki. Xcyr is a descendant of the package Xrus-2.3 of Andrey Chernov.
