Bulgaria applied on Monday to register an Internet domain name in Cyrillic script as part of efforts to boost national pride amid a growing influence of English.
The Balkan country of 7.7 million people last year won the right to spell the euro common currency as "evro" according to Cyrillic rules after threatening to block several European Union diplomatic initiatives.

Cyrillic domain names sure would make it hard for the rest of the world to access that website
Or look at it from the other side... Finally, Russians,Japanese,Chinese and anyone else speaking any language can have the basic privilege of using the web in a language they speak and not forced to use.
