The 8-bit ISO character set for the Cyrillic alphabet. ISO-8859-5 can be used with many Eastern European languages such as Russian, Bulgarian, Serbian, and Macedonian. It can be used with Ukrainian as well, though it is not ideal since it lacks the Ukrainian variant of ghe with an upturn. ISO-8859-5 is not heavily used in practice -- KOI8 and Windows-1251 are much more widespread.

The lower 128 entries are the same as the ASCII and ISO 8859-1 character sets. The top 128 entries contain the Cyrillic characters. The standard 32-letter Cyrillic alphabet starts with the uppercase letters at entry 176 (0xB0) and the lowercase letters at 208 (0xD0). Entries 160 through 175 (0xA0-0xAF) and 240 through 255 (0xF0-0xFF) contain Cyrillic extensions plus some miscellaneous symbols.

The Cyrillic characters are:
