The Russian teachers will go to Tajikistan
Valentina Matvienko, who is Chairman of the Federation Council, plans to send teachers of Russian language abroad. Destination for teachers will be Tajikistan. Matvienko said that the locals of the former Soviet Republic gradually lose their connection with Russian culture. Young people do not know the Russian language, and this is a big problem.
The Chairman of the Federation Council proposed to run a pilot project. It will involve 30 teachers. To pay the teachers and provide for them the living space is on the receiving end. The first group of teachers will travel to Tajikistan on 1 September 2017.
