Zhe with breve (? ?; italics: ? ?) is a letter of the Cyrillic script, created by Soviet linguists for the cyrillization of non-Slavic languages. Its form is derived from the Cyrillic letter Zhe (? ? ? ?).

Zhe with breve is used in the alphabets of the following languages:

Language Pronunciation Notes
Gagauz /d/ voiced postalveolar affricate, like the pronunciation of ⟨j⟩ in "jam" corresponds to ⟨c⟩ in the Latin alphabet
Romanian/Moldovan corresponds to ⟨g⟩ before front vowels in the Latin alphabet; replaced the traditional letter ?

Zhe with breve corresponds in other Cyrillic alphabets to the digraphs ⟨⟩ or ⟨⟩, or to the letters Che with descender (? ?), Che with vertical stroke (? ?), Dzhe (? ?), Khakassian Che (? ?), Zhe with diaeresis (? ?), or Zhje (? ?).

Traditionally, these characters were transliterated into the International English character set as ⟨dzh⟩, as in Birobidzhan; but more recently, especially in the US, they are transliterated as ⟨j⟩, as in Azerbaijan.
