Lithuanian Cyrillic (лиетувиў калба)

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.
