In the word ABU, rules of vowel harmony will demand that the following gedes (ie loop) is a U and not the weaker O.
The word needs to be led by an O in order to be followed by an O.

As far as I can make out, knowing the Cyrillic spelling (аав) and knowing what the Mongolian script spelling looks like still leaves one with two alternatives - O and U.  Are people missing an obvious clue as to the spelling?
