All Languages that Use Cyrillic

Can you name every extant language that currently uses the Cyrillic alphabet as a primary alphabet?
Languages with asterisks next to them do not use Cyrillic exclusively
Number of native speakers and language family are given as hints
Primary sources: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrillic_alphabets, https://www.omniglot.com/writing/cyrillic.htm
I decided not to include Interslavic, Old Church Slavonic, or Slovio, as they have no living native speakers (as far as I can tell)
