The Russian language is the fundamental value of the country, Russian President Vladimir Putin believes. He said this during meetings with a working group that is preparing amendments to the Constitution of the country, TASS reports.
According to the head of state, the language is one of the most important state-forming factors. Another of its functions is international communication.
Putin noted that, if the group members had a question about strengthening the status of the Russian language in the country's Basic Law, then there is a reason for this. Nevertheless, the Russian leader added, it is worth considering whether something needs to be changed in the Constitution in this regard.
Earlier, the public council under the Ministry of Culture of Russia took the initiative to enshrine constitutional amendments aimed at protecting the Russian language. According to members of the council, amendments should be made to the preamble of the basic law of Russia. It is proposed to supplement the text with the following amendments: “Saving the cultural heritage and civilizational identity of the people”, “Protecting the purity of the Russian language and the languages of the peoples of Russia”, “Having the main goal of exercising power is the preservation of the people”.
