The Welsh Cyrillic alphabet was invented by Sam Bateman in August of 2014. He wanted to make the Welsh language easier to read for speakers of Russian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, etc., and to diversify the language itself. It is used for writing Welsh, and was modelled on the Russian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Serbian Cyrillic, Kildin Sami and Nivkh alphabets, although several letters are pronounced differently.
Welsh Cyrillic is an alphabet with 29 letters, written from left to right, and is used for writing in Welsh.

Genir pawb yn rhydd ac yn gydradd â'i gilydd mewn urddas a hawliau. Fe'u cynysgaeddir â rheswm a chydwybod, a dylai pawb ymddwyn y naill at y llall mewn ysbryd cymodlon.
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.
