    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.
