Alisher Kadyrov suggested reducing the Russian language in the television and educational system



Alisher Kadyrov, the deputy speaker of the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis and chairman of the "National Revival" democratic party, has proposed a reduction in the utilization of the Russian language in Uzbekistan's education and television systems. Kadyrov, expressing his view on social media, highlighted the disproportionate presence of the Russian language for Russian compatriots, who constitute less than 3% of the population, and emphasized the need for correction.

He suggested incorporating the norm for primary education in Uzbekistan into the law and recommended initiating the exchange of TV shows with neighboring countries. Kadyrov, speaking on behalf of the "National Revival" party, emphasized the importance of collaboration with Kazakh, Uzar, Kyrgyz, Turkmen, Turkish, and Tajik counterparts in addressing these matters.

It's worth noting that Kadyrov's proposal coincided with Russian chauvinist historian Mikhail Smolin's assertions that the peoples of Central Asia, particularly Uzbeks and Kazakhs, supposedly did not exist before the 1917 revolution. Meanwhile, Zakhar Prilepin, deputy commander of the Russian Guard regiment for military and political issues, suggested incorporating former USSR territories into the Russian Federation and promoting Russian language education.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs clarified that these views represent personal opinions, not Moscow's official stance. Kadyrov, commenting on these chauvinistic statements, emphasized the need for practical measures to restore relations, stating that Moscow's official position recognizes the peculiar behavior of chauvinists and aims to address it.

A reminder: Minhojiddin Mirzo, the head of the Center for Spirituality and Enlightenment of Uzbekistan, previously proposed an immediate restriction on foreign propaganda through radio, television channels, and websites to safeguard the population from harmful ideas.
