MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin highlighted on Thursday the importance of studying foreign experience in popularizing national languages abroad.
"Everything must be done to make knowledge of classical and modern literature and well-bred speech an unalienable part of the country’s life, common decencies, to make this fashionable," Putin said at a plenary session of the Russian Literature and Language Society’s Congress.
"These tasks can be solved only through consistent work, through well-thought-out large-scale programs, in which not only interested government agencies will take part but also citizens of the country," he added.
"And of course it will be correct to rely on world’s best traditions and practices, to take into consideration the experience of colleagues from the British Royal Society of Literature, the Italian Institute of Culture, the Spanish Cervantes Institute, the German Goethe Institute and the Chinese Confucius Institute, including in issues of promoting national languages and culture abroad," the president said.
"Conservation of the Russian language, literature, our culture is a matter of national security, of maintaining identity in the global world, while the Russian classical literature, standard Russian language have always been and will remain the basis of Russian spiritual values," the Russian leader noted.
