Not so. U+0483 is COMBINING CYRILLIC TITLO, which may be placed after
any letter to generate a letter-titlo. There is also, I'm not sure why,
the characters U+047C/D, CYRILLIC SMALL/CAPITAL LETTER OMEGA WITH TITLO, though
they are not canonically equivalent to U+0460/1, CYRILLIC SMALL/CAPITAL OMEGA
followed by a COMBINING TITLO.
Anybody know why not, and why this solitary titlo character is present in
the first place?
What is genuinely missing is IOTIFIED A. Because LITTLE YUS and IOTIFIED A
fell together in Russian as /ja/, Peter eliminated the latter and adopted a
modified form of LITTLE YUS, now CYRILLIC LETTER YA.
