Which languages use the Cyrillic alphabet?
The Cyrillic alphabet is used for many languages of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, including Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian (Belarusian), Serbian, Macedonian and Bulgarian, as well as Mongolian. During the Soviet period, most of the Soviet republics used the Cyrillic alphabet for their national languages; since the breakup of the Soviet Union, some of those languages have switched to the Latin alphabet (Azerbaijani, Moldovan, Turkmen and Uzbek), while others have stayed with the Cyrillic alphabet (Kazakh, Kyrgyz and Tajik). Many of the minority languages in Russia are also written in the Cyrillic alphabet.
