The Cyrillic alphabet is still used most often for the Uzbek language, although the government has adopted a version of the Latin alphabet to replace it.

 Ge (Cyrillic) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
In standard Serbian, Bulgarian and Macedonian language Ge always represents voiced velar plosive /g/, i.e., it is pronounced like the G in English go.
In the Belarusian language, it was supposedly more frequent (to render words borrowed from Polish and Russian), but during the twentieth century the distinction in usage blurred significantly.
Reintroduction of ge into the Belarusian alphabet is only proposed by some linguists and not supported officially.

The alphabets of the nations located on the territories of the former USSR are mainly based on the modern Russian alphabet.
There probably are other alphabets especially on the territory of the former USSR but their inclusion into this table at this point seems to be inappropriate as they’ve been used by an extremely small number of speakers.
If the choice is made between various Cyrillic numbering systems it is preferred that these systems are included or excluded in accordance with the number of native speakers of the corresponding language.

 Sha   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Sha (Ш, ш;) is a letter of the Cyrillic alphabet, representing the consonant sound /ʃ/ or /ʃʲ/.
This sound is described as a voiceless postalveolar fricative and postalveolar fricatives are the major reason why the Glagolitic and later the Cyrillic alphabet were invented because Slavic languages are rich on postalveolar fricatives and you cannot write these sounds with a simple Roman or Greek letter without diacritics.
Most letters of Cyrillic script have been derived from Greek and as there was no Greek sign for the Sha sound, Glagolitic Sha was adopted.

The AcademicFont Cyrillic character set was developed by University Microcomputers, who pioneered the use of Slavic languages on IBM-compatible computers in the US in the mid-eighties.
However, the non-Russian Cyrillic characters (160-176 and 240-255 in new KOI-8) are not part of OV, their space is taken up by some graphics chars described for AV above.
ISO 8859-5 provides for the Cyrillic characters required for writing all major Slavic Cyrillic alphabets (Belorussian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Serbian, Ukrainian...), but not for those alphabets that were devised for non-Slavic languages in the Soviet Union (Abkhazian, Bashkir, Chukchee, Khanty, Tajik,....), or archaic letters.

 | Cyrillic lower case | Typophile   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
But some of the Cyrillic lower case letters seem to demand more space, due to their being based directly off of the upper case (such as Yah, which looks like a backwards small cap R).
Since it would be a rare situation in which Cyrillic lower case are standing next to Latin characters (small caps or lower case);, I imagine that maintaining a level of consistency with regard to x-height is probably not a big deal.
What you advised was not to design Cyrillic glyphs with a slightly enlarged x-height, but rather to give some extra horizontal space by slightly increasing the sidebearings of the Cyrillic glyphs as compared to Latin.
