I don't know anyone that use phonetic layout. Having the Latin a phonetic jcuken is used more than the opposite with Russians I know who don't speak English. It makes it easier for them to type for web addresses etc.

This makes me think you don't know any native Russian speakers who learned to touch type in English first. Various phonetic layouts are pretty popular outside the former USSR.

Good point, let's not forget the Bulgarians. Добър ден!

Well, hello there, товарищ!

I had to use both BDS and GOST Cyrillic layouts for some small durations of time, and because I learned to touch type on QWERTY it's absolutely true that phonetic is the way to go.


Just checked Mongolian Cyrillic layout:
