Cyrillic Text

The Cyrillic alphabet (named after the Slav apostle Kyrillos, who lived from 826/27 to 869) originated from the Greek uppercase alphabet which was intended originally for church use and was adapted to the phonetic peculiarities of the Slav languages. The alphabet today is used in a simplified form in Russia, in several states of the former Soviet Union as well as in Bulgaria, Serbia and Mongolia.
