MOSCOW, September 18. /TASS/. Estonia’s language policy is running counter to the recommendations from international human rights institutes on ensuring the rights of national minorities, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday, commenting on the Estonian government’s refusal to permit a number of Tallinn-based schools to continue educational process in Russian.
"We have repeatedly voiced our concern over the discriminatory language policy the Estonian authorities are pursuing towards our compatriots," she said.
"The Estonian government’s decision, which runs counter to the recommendations from international human rights institutions on ensuring ethnic minorities’ rights to preserve and develop their language, has once again proved the rightness of such assesments," she said.
