Latvian referendum is not the last echo of Soviet occupation

R. Valatka / The Lithuania Tribune
What’s the number of state schools in Russia offering education exclusively in Udmurt, Chuvash, Yakut, or Chechen language? Alternatively, let’s put it thus, if you will: How many state schools in Germany instruct only in Kurdish, Turkish or Serbian? Latvia, meanwhile, has around a hundred exclusively Russian schools. That is one of the reasons why Russians there can get away so easily without knowing a word of Latvian.
