The Kyivska Rus school located on the left bank of the Dnipro River in Kyiv will be Russian-language and it will be built for the funds of investors, Head of Kyiv City State Administration (KSCA) Oleksandr Popov has said.

"Some Russian companies are investors of this project. The school will be located in a building that will be reconstructed and expanded in size," he said at a briefing in Kyiv on Monday.

Popov also said: "I hope that a Russian-language school will appear next year."

Minister for Education and Science, Youth and Sports Dmytro Tabachnyk earlier sent a letter to Kyiv City State Administration with the proposal to open on the left bank of the Dnipro River in Kyiv the Kyivska Rus school with the advanced study of the Russian language, as well as the history and culture of all Slavic peoples.

In his opinion, such an institution can be created on the basis of the school, which is currently being built in the city's Darnytsia district (Osokorky housing estate, 6 Hmyri Street).

A Russian "Kyivska Rus school" is an oxymoron.
