Che with vertical stroke (Ҹ ҹ; italics: Ҹ ҹ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. Its form is derived from the Cyrillic letter Che (Ч ч Ч ч).

Che with vertical stroke is used in the alphabet of the Azeri language[1] and Altai language, where it represents the voiced postalveolar affricate /d͡ʒ/, like the pronunciation of ⟨j⟩ in "jump". The corresponding letter in the Latin alphabet is ⟨C c⟩. In Altai, it represents the voiced alveolo-palatal affricate /dʑ/.

Che with vertical stroke corresponds in other Cyrillic alphabets to the digraphs ⟨дж⟩ or ⟨чж⟩, or to the letters Che with descender (Ҷ ҷ), Dzhe (Џ џ), Khakassian Che (Ӌ ӌ), Zhe with breve (Ӂ ӂ), Zhe with diaeresis (Ӝ ӝ), or Zhje (Җ җ).

From 1958 until 1991, it was used in the Azerbaijani alphabet to represent /d͡ʒ/;[2] in this alphabet it is found in the name of Azerbaijan: «Азәрбайҹан». The Azerbaijani Cyrillic alphabet and ⟨ҹ⟩ continue to be used to write Azerbaijani in Dagestan.
