Maybe originally U+044B (cyrillic "y", "yery") was two separate letters,
but it is certainly considered and used as one letter in Cyrillic
languages today. Encoding it as two letters would be about as sensible
as insisting that w should be encoded as two u's or that i should be
encoded as dotless i plus combining dot.
Note that "yery" is also sometimes written with an acute accent centred
over the two elements, to indicate stress.
