The System VIO fonts have been extracted from IBM OS/2 distribution.
The original fonts are designed for large number of scripts, but the fonts here contain glyphs from Latin-1 and Cyrillic codepages only, and are present in iso8859-1, koi8-r, cp866, cp1251, and iso10646-1 encodings.
The effort is made by Dmitry Karasik, Vadim Belman, and Anton Berezin. The archive contains the following fonts:

12x30 is available as a TTF font:
. Use ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf to have it antialiased.
The following fonts with much more glyphs are a courtesy from Roy Tam: ibm-vio-os2-fonts at GitHub
TTFs were converted using the great fontforge
