Vladimir Putin: Sadyr Japarov is doing a lot to preserve the Russian language

«Sadyr Japarov is doing a lot to preserve the Russian language in Kyrgyzstan,» the Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a ceremony of launch of construction of Russian-language schools in the republic.

The event was held in the format of a videoconference.

According to the Russian leader, it is symbolic that the parties are launching this important and popular project on September 1, on the Day of Knowledge. He expressed confidence that the builders will work qualitatively and quickly so that in 2026 the students will sit at the desks. Russia plans to build nine schools in seven cities and two villages in Kyrgyzstan by 2027, where more than 11,000 children will learn.

«The new educational institutions will be equipped with the most advanced technologies. This will help make the learning process comfortable, interesting and exciting. School buildings are designed to meet all safety standards. Russia will bear all the costs,» Vladimir Putin said.

He also stressed that school graduates would receive two certificates, which is a competitive advantage when choosing a path in life.

Teachers will be from both Kyrgyzstan and Russia, but they will be specially trained in Russian universities.

The Russian president also told about Russian educational projects that are being implemented in Kyrgyzstan and exchange programs for schoolchildren and students.

«All these diverse educational projects have largely become possible thanks to the support and personal participation of President Sadyr Nurgozhoevich Japarov. And, in general, I want to say that much attention is paid in Kyrgyzstan to preserving the position of the Russian language. Russian is the state language (official — Note of 24.kg news agency). This unique condition shows that Kyrgyzstan attaches great importance to the development of our relations,» he said.

Vladimir Putin also once again congratulated Sadyr Japarov and the people of the Kyrgyz Republic on the Independence Day.
