Friendly URL are human-readable URL links that contain human-readable words in the address. Such site page addresses are more understandable to the user and looking at the url you can understand what the page is about.
Like CNC rules links have the following format
https://site.com/category_name_in words/article_title_in words.
It should also be taken into account that modern sites and search robots understand such links in both Cyrillic and Latin. However, the Cyrillic link will look in a different encoding. Ideally, transliterate the Friendly URL reference to the Latin alphabet.
