Five schools teaching in Russian may open in Tajikistan on September 1 this year. This is stated in an article by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, published Thursday in Rossiyskaya Gazeta on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with the states of Central Asia.
"The joint Russian-Turkmen general education school named after A.S. Pushkin is very popular in Turkmenistan. The construction of five schools in Tajikistan with teaching in Russian is continuing. We expect them to open their doors for students as early as September 1 this year," the minister said.
"It is important that education in Russian-language schools gives citizens of Central Asian countries the opportunity to enter universities in Russia on equal terms. About 160 thousand citizens of Central Asian countries study in Russia every year, 60 thousand of them at the expense of the federal budget," Lavrov added.
