Esperanto Cyrillic (Есперанто-цирила)

During the Soviet era (1922-1991), esperantists often used a version of the Cyrillic alphabet to write Esperanto, as few had typewriters with Latin letters. This system uses letters from Russian, Belarusian and Serbian.

The Cyrillic alphabet is still sometimes used in Esperanto textbooks for people who use the Cyrillic alphabet.
