You have a hidden problem: "Use Vegur, LibreOffice's official font, if you
need to."

I hope it is a misconception that Vegur would be "LibreOffice's official font".

This means that Bulgaria, Belarus, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine and other
countries that use the Cyrillic alphabet,

I thought languages used scripts, not countries?

will be offended, because "Vegur"
does not include their national symbols.

Calm down. If what I read on the net about Vegur's glyph coverage is
true, there are lots of languages, even most of the ones using Latin
script, that Vegur is unsuitable for. No need to think of it is an
evil conspiracy against Cyrillic.

(And anyway, whenever I read about "offended" national pride, I feel
sad (for those whose alleged national pride is so easily offended),
and a bit scared (because nationalism is evil and the root cause of
much violence).)
