Tajikistan has Banned Russian endings in surnames
It seems USAID and NGOs have been working double time to erode Russia's remaining influence in the post soviet space, there was another article several years ago where Kazakhstan reportedly planned to switch their alphabet from Cyrilic to English. I wish Russia can reverse this obvious sabotage and impose more Russufication + Christianization of the former soviet union territories
Ummm they actually did that like 7-8 years ago.
What was the response to this? Don't tell me Russia took that lightly?
Why would there be a response?
Did it hurt Russian state or economic interests somehow?
It's their country, they can do whatever they want.
Russia's not in a position to judge; since 1991 we've phased out quite a bit of what we inherited from the Soviet Union, other former republics more, and Tajikistan has banned Russian endings for Tajik names - boo hoo.
BTW Russian is still taught in Tajikistan and no-one's trying to get rid of it there.
