Uyghur script in a 15th-century Russian document

Hi all,

Noticed this fascinating tweet today, and the article it links to in the replies. Apparently this instance of Russian written in Uyghur script (the predecessor to Classical Mongolian and Manchu) in 1436 predates the earliest instances of Russian written in Greek or Latin characters. A nice tidbit for the Eurasianists.
