Hrazhdanka alphabet

Hrazhdanka alphabet [Hraždanka]. Originally a script used for books of a non-religious nature. It consisted of Cyrillic alphabet characters somewhat modified to resemble Latin letters and reflecting a general tendency toward simplification. Although it was introduced for Russian in 1708 by order of Peter I, the hrazhdanka to some extent was influenced by the development of the Cyrillic script in Ukraine.
