The National Bank of Ukraine “disowned” from the scandal associated with using pirated font in the new bill

“The most attention among the other fonts, where the font designer Andrey Shevchenko on the bill have counted as many as 11, was attracted by the words “One thousand hryvnias” on the reverse side. When searching for the original font, which he made, was the inconsistency of forms some of his letters with the official. This is especially manifested in the word “hryvnia” and most clearly in the letter “V”, — he noted.
