Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government to develop a bill that would allow officials and ordinary citizens to comply with the norms and rules of the modern literary Russian language in areas where its use is mandatory. Until September 15, the document must be submitted to the State Duma.

As reported on the Kremlin's official website, the head of state instructed to approve uniform requirements for the compilation of dictionaries containing the norms of the modern Russian literary language and to apply them in the media, government agencies and schools. In addition, by March 15, a legal act must be prepared confirming the norms of the modern literary Russian language as the state language. 

The purpose of the innovations is to form an active and holistic language policy that will ensure the preservation and development of the Russian language, Russian literature in Russia and in the world. As the researchers found out, the Russian language now ranks tenth in terms of distribution. Since the 90s, the number of people studying it has fallen markedly. If 20 years ago it reached 74,6 million people, now it’s only 38,2 million people.
