this is a preliminary proposal to add a new Cyrillic character to the
Character status: historical, used in old Cyrillic based Romanian
alphabet in XV - XIX cc. Became obsolete for a double reason. In
Romania Cyrillic alphabet was superseded by a Latin based one in 1860.
It corresponds to modern Romanian î (0xEE). In eastern Moldova that
was under Russian rule (nowadays Republic of Moldova) with the
introduction of the standard script ("grazhdanka") this letter was
replaced by its closest Russian equivalent ы (0x44B).

If there are no objections I will proceed with an official proposal.
