MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. Some political elites abroad are carrying out a deliberate policy of repressing the Russian language, State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin said in an interview with Rossiya 24 TV channel broadcast on Friday.

"We can say that there are obstacles, sometimes maybe even from separate political groups or political elites of several countries, there are even elements of a deliberate policy of repressing the Russian language and, consequently, on violating the rights of citizens that think and talk in Russian. Of course, this can be described as a violation of fundamental norms and rules and of morals," Naryshkin said.

Language and cultural diversity is a factor that contributes to forming a multi-polar world and hampers the distribution of "barbarian" ideologies, he continued. "That is why Russia will do everything possible to support the promotion of the Russian language, Russian literature outside our country. This includes programs of humanitarian cooperation, of teaching in the Russian language in universities, as well as organizational, methodical and to some extent financial support for Russian school outside of Russia," the speaker noted adding that there is great interest in the world to the Russian language and Russian literature.
