# Cyrillic symbols in Latex

I have to translate a book. The book uses math fonts. I'm completely new to latex except using it in wikipedia articles.

When i add support for ukrainian language the layout is broken. Also there is a problem with boldness.

I prepared minimal example which reproduces the error with boldness:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english,ukrainian]{babel}
\usepackage{times}
\usepackage[mtpcal,mtphrb,zswash,subscriptcorrection]{mtpro2}

\begin{document}

\frontmatter

\end{document}


It produces this

If delete lines 2 and 3 it produces this

If delete lines 4 and 5 it produces this

How can i make it to use Cyrillic symbols along with times?

Just to check i changed boldmath to textit then i got

Package inputenc Error: Unicode char �\check@icr (U+3E8) (inputenc) not set up for use with LaTeX.

• Unless there is a Cyrillic version of the times font you're out of luck, I think. Have you seen a Cyrillic Times yet? ;-) By the way, the times package is outdated anyway – user31729 Aug 24 '16 at 14:03
• @ChristianHupfer thanks, with what can i replace it then? – Yola Aug 24 '16 at 14:03
• The font experts will show up with a solution, I am pretty sure – user31729 Aug 24 '16 at 14:08
• the example you've shown is ordinary text, not math, so i've changed the tag from [boldmath] to [bold]. – barbara beeton Aug 24 '16 at 18:06

The times package (besides being obsolete) doesn't provide a Cyrillic font.

With an up-to-date TeX system, you can use tempora, which provides a Times clone supporting both Cyrillic and Greek, besides Latin.

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english,ukrainian]{babel}
\usepackage{tempora}
\usepackage[lite]{mtpro2} % I just have the lite version

\begin{document}

\frontmatter
