East Slavic languages

Subgroup of Slavic languages, currently spoken in Eastern Europe.

Current East Slavic languages: Russian, Belarusian, Ukrainian and others.

Ukrainian and Belarusian are considered by some to be dialects of Russian rather than separate languages in their own right. The languages are similar enough to provide a continuum of mutual understanding throughout the area of these languages.

All these languages use Cyrillic alphabet with minor modifications.
