This is an interesting logic. All universities require
russian literature exams with rediculous emphasis on
how many books one has read and punctuation puzzles.
At the same time, Tatarstani universities do not
require Tatar literature or even language exams.
Tatar children are required to study Russian language.
And after there was only 1 Tatar school left in Qazan
in 1985, when there is a legitimate attempt to teach
Tatar language on Tatars' land, somebody tries to
prevent it. If this court goes with that, it will only
prove the corruption of the Moscow-controlled legal
P.S. A tangent matter is how the language is
perceived. If the right alphabet was accepted, and the
power of Tatar language in communicating with more
than 150 million Turk(ic) peoples was reflected, the
language perception would improve.
