USART RX interrupt driven ring buffer

Hey guys. First of all im new to this kind of stuff, so dont judge me please. 
I've been working for days on USART. I learned to transmit and receive strings via usart in normal mode, but as i try to do it with interrupts everything fall apart.

First I have tried to init usart interupts, and use it with single characters - it worked nicely, but now im trying to do it with multiple chars using ring buffer as a storage. After all i will try to parse the string that i got. I searched every thread but it seems that i cant find the right answer to this.

Maybe anyone have some examples of this? (ring buffer struct functions and implementation of it into usart interrupt receiver?)

struct bufer {
     char buf[buffsize];
     int start;
     int end;
     int count;
struct bufer buf = {0};

void UartBufferInit(void) {
     buf.start = 0;
     buf.end = 0;

bool UartBufferEmpty(void) {
     return (buf.start == buf.end) ? TRUE : FALSE;

bool UartBufferFull(uint8_t c) {
     return (((buf.end + 1) % buffsize) == buf.start) ? TRUE : FALSE;

bool PutIntoBuffer(uint8_t c) {
          buf.buf[buf.end] = c;
          buf.end = (buf.end +1) % buffsize;
          return TRUE;
     } else {
          return FALSE;

void USART1_IRQHandler(void) {
     static char CopyOfBuf[buffsize];
     static int rx_index = 0;
     if (USART_GetITStatus(USART1, USART_IT_RXNE) != RESET) {
          char rx = USART_ReceiveData(USART1);
          if ((rx == '\r') || (rx == '\n')) {
               if(rx_index != 0) {
                    memcpy(CopyOfBuf, buf.buf, sizeof(buf.buf)+1);
