We need to look for ways to motivate learning. The status of the state languages should be appropriate, we are working on it, I am sure that we will find a worthy decision in terms of state languages. ” How specifically the issue will be resolved, the chairman of the Committee on Nationalities Affairs of the State Duma did not specify.
