Well, GOST 7.79 has five tables in the body (and 
two in Appendices). Table 1 and 2 are 
transliteration of Slavonic and non-Slavonic 
alphabets, and Table 3 is re-transliteration, 
and all three are marked as 'Система А' 
(transliteration using diacritics). Tables 4 and 
5 are, indeed, translit. and re-translit. of 
ru,be,uk,bg,mk using no diacritics. These are 
marked as 'Система Б' (transliteration using 
letters' combinations - 'буквосочетания').
