Cyrillic. There are people on this board with much more experience than me on the subject. But I believe the correct transliteration for what turns out to be "e" in our language is actually "yo"

F'yo'dorov, S'yo'min, Sem'yo'n (Varlamov), etc. I think it's more accurate to the actual pronunciation of it.
