The question, “What are you, illiterate?” has long been regarded as ironic. Indeed, some may be more capable than others, but everyone in Russia can read and write, so no one would ever think of patting themselves on the back for it.

Beginning on 1 September 2018, students will only be able to study in Russian or the languages of other national minorities before the fifth grade.
