On September 1, Sadyr Zhaparov, President of Kyrgyzstan, and Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, launched the construction of three Russian-language schools in Bishkek, Batken and Karakol.
Construction itself will begin in 2024. In total, Russia will build nine Russian-language schools in all regions of Kyrgyzstan. It is planned to build three schools each year. The first three will be commissioned in 2025.
Education will be conducted according to the standards of both states, with students being able to receive two certificates at once.
As you may recall, Russian is the official and working language of the Collective Security Treaty Organization. According to the Constitution of Kyrgyzstan, Russian remains the official language of the country. And representatives of all ethnic groups that make up the Kyrgyz nation are guaranteed the right to enable the preservation, study and evolution of their native language.
