BOR HOLIDAY CENTRE, Moscow region, October 4 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s government plans to set up a council for promotion of the Russian language, Deputy Education and Science Minister Veniamin Kaganov said at a meeting of the United Russia party conference.
“The new council is expected to coordinate interdepartmental collaboration and to enhance work that is aimed, among other things, at the rehabilitation of the Russian language inside and outside the country,” Kaganov said.
After creating the council, the Russian regions and foreign countries are likely to be more interested in Russian as their native or second language, he said.
“I think people will be more motivated to learn Russian when more opportunities emerge and new programs become accessible including online teaching,” he said. “So it will help to revive and foster love and respect for the Russian language and to spark interest in studying the Russian language and Russian culture as well.”
