MOSCOW, January 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin stressed the importance of making the Russian language, literature and culture exams obligatory for migrants starting from 2013.
“It is important for us to see migrants normally adjusted in the society. Yes, actually an elementary requirement for people wishing to live and work in Russia is their readiness to study our culture and language,” he said in his article published in the Nezavisimaya Gazeta daily on Monday.
“Beginning from 2013 it is necessary to make the exams on the Russian language, history and literature, and fundamentals of our state and law obligatory for getting and extending the migration status,” Putin said.
The head of government underlined that Russia was ready to develop and provide necessary education programs to migrants. However, in some cases additional vocational trainings financed by employers will be required.
