The Lithuanian Cyrillic alphabet was invented by Noah Shamley.
He is not the first to adapt the Cyrillic alphabet for Lithuanian:
between 1864-1904 the Cyrillic alphabet was used to some extent
to write Lithuanian, although very inconsistently using many
diacritics. Noah's version is designed to be easier to learn
for those who can already read Cyrillic.
Visi žmonės gimsta laisvi ir lygūs savo orumu ir teisėmis. Jiems suteiktas protas ir sąžinė ir jie turi elgtis vienas kito atžvilgiu kaip broliai.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood. (Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
