MOSCOW, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The policy of Ukrainization in the Republic of Crimea has failed, the speaker of the State Duma lower house of parliament, Sergei Naryshkin said.
He was speaking at a session of the lower house’s Council of Education and Science devoted to the integration of Crimea and Sevastopol into Russia’s education system.
“For more than 20 years the authorities in Kiev pursued a policy of Ukrainization of the Crimean population. The policy has failed. Crimea protected and preserved its historical memory and cultural heritage,” he said.
“Our priority is to make a legal base to start working in these newly incorporated Russian territories,” Naryshkin said.
In compliance with a federal law on admitting new entities the transition period will last till January 1, 2015, he added.
“Many issues and draft resolutions are planning to be discussed and approved. Amendments should be made to the basic law on education and other laws,” Naryshkin said.
“We should understand that time is a factor. In two months' time the final exams will begin. And the new school year starts on September 1,” he said.
