N2 - Vassiliev introduced filtered invariants of knots using an unknotting operation, called crossing changes. Goussarov, Polyak, and Viro introduced other filtered invariants of virtual knots, which order is called GPV-order, using an unknotting operation, called virtualization. We defined other filtered invariants, which order is called F-order, of virtual knots using an unknotting operation, called forbidden moves. In this paper, we show that the set of virtual knot invariants of F-order ≤n+1 is strictly stronger than that of F-order ≤n and that of GPV-order ≤2n+1. To obtain the result, we show that the set of virtual knot invariants of F-order ≤n contains every Goussarov-Polyak-Viro invariant of GPV-order ≤2n+1, which implies that the set of virtual knot invariants of F-order is a complete invariant of classical and virtual knots.
