“None of local government agencies have a right to decide on declaring a regional language. This is the state government’s right. Local authorities only have a right to inform the population and instruct local government agencies to draft a program on the implementation of the law,” Kolesnichenko said.

He stressed that one should read better relevant instructions of regional councils and make sure that they are just informing the population that a certain percentage of people on their territory use Russian language.
