Kazakh Short U (Ұ ұ; italics: Ұ ұ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script.[1] In Unicode, this letter is called "Straight U with stroke".[1] Its form is the Cyrillic letter Ue (Ү ү Ү ү) with a horizontal stroke through it.

Kazakh Short U is used in the alphabet of the Kazakh language,[1] where it represents the close back rounded vowel /u/, or the near-close near-back rounded vowel /ʊ/. In other circumstances, it is used as a replacement for the former letter to represent close front rounded vowel /y/ in situations where it would be easilly confused with Cyrillic letter У у. It is romanized as ⟨ū⟩ in Kazakh (2021 reform).
