SEVASTOPOL, March 11, /ITAR-TASS/. Authorities in Sevastopol plan to maintain instruction in both Russian and Ukrainian at local schools, Viktor Oganesyan, the acting chief of the city’s education department told reporters Monday.
“Considering the cultural traditions and language specificity of the region, we are going to raise the issue of two parallel instruction languages at our schools - in Russian and Ukrainian,” he said adding that the number of academic hours allotted for Russian classes will be increased considerably.
At the same time, classes of the Crimean Tatar language will be introduced in the schools of the Tatar community.
“Crimea is a multiethnic region and we must live in harmony here and copy from the example set by Tranisdnestria (Moldova’s breakaway Dniester region - Itar-Tass) where three languages - Russian, Moldovan and Ukrainian - are used on equal footing,” Oganesyan said.
