MOSCOW, March 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The Republic of Crimea will have three full-fledged state languages — Russian, Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in his special address over Republic of Crimea’s accession to Russia on Tuesday.
“We take with respect representatives of all nationalities living in Crimea. This is their common house, their homeland. This will be right if Crimea, and I know that Crimean residents support this, will have three equal state languages — Russian, Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar,” Putin said.
