I can confirm the problem, but I don't see any evidence to suggest how
it happened. I suspect the only forward course is to commit the English
figures and edit them appropriately.


I've looked at the revision history, and seems this error was there from the beginning. Further, I've had a look up and understood what causes the error. The reason is explained at [1] . Then, I've compared set of English figures with the corresponding Russian figures. The conclusion is that both images are "similar" (i.e. there were no word translations), and the difference between the files is that all hex "0D" characters (CRLF) in the original file are replaced with a hex "0A" (LF).

So, yes, committing the English figures, and edit them appropriately would be the way! And, importantly, it doesn't lose any other's efforts on this!
