In Syrian schools the Russian language is introduced as a second language.
This was stated by the Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad.
“The decision by President Bashar al-Assad that Russian language became the second language in Syria is one of the elements of gratitude of the Syrian people to the Russian people for their support. Even many families named their children Putin. It is no secret if I say that the President’s children are now taught Russian”, – he said.
The diplomat added that all of Syria’s universities have been opened in the Department of Russian language study. In schools the study of Russian begins with the seventh grade.
