Do not like it - leave: in Riga responded opponents of the education reform

78
Parliamentary Secretary of the Ministry of Justice of Latvia Janis Iesalnieks advised everyone who disagreed with the translation of Russian schools into the Latvian language of instruction "to return to their homeland", reports RIA News.




If someone here, in Latvia, does not like everything and wants everything in Russian, then you can safely return to your homeland,
wrote Jesalnieks, accompanying his publication with a poster “Motherland is calling!”.

On May 1, the “May Day Demonstration” action took place in Riga, directed against the complete translation of school education into the Latvian language, as well as the start of first-grade education from 6 years and the optimization of educational institutions. About 10 thousand people took part in the march.

Previous action - "March of angry parents" - was 4 April.

Recall, the Latvian Parliament 23 March approved amendments to the law "On Education", requiring the transfer of all schools to the state language of instruction for the 2021-2022 school year. On April 2, this law was signed by President Raimonds Vejonis.

About 2 million people live in the territory of Latvia, of which 40% is Russian-speaking. However, according to the law, there is only one state language in the republic - Latvian, Russian has the status of a foreign language.

    Okay ... you can measure it ... as they say ... the less, the more ambition ... But what is characteristic is the Latvian language is very poor and people use a lot of borrowings from the Russian language for communication ... including and technical terms ... That is, in fact there is no replacement as such ...

      This is what the reform of education is designed for, a normal market answer, without options.
      And it would be 40% from the Caucasus, to see how the reform would have gone there. In Kiev, one instance of face was charged and the crusts did not help, probably they were forced to eat in between.

        Russophobia blooms in a violent color .. Now they make a lot of money on this and the Balts also get a lot. The Russians need to leave before it's too late, they will squeeze it all the same!

            The Russian people need to be assembled into a single whole. The territory in Russia is huge, there is enough room for everyone! Otherwise, we’ll be crushed as a spiritual nation. We are uncomfortable with the “drastic world” with our principles and spirituality ..

          I think that Latvians will die out and disperse faster than ours in Lithuania. And the Latvian language is already on the endangered list, and soon everyone will forget it at all.

        Well, what do you want? During the “perestroika” period, the Baltic Russian-speaking “sixties,” and now liberals, unanimously called for repentance for the “occupation”. When the foam of all sayudis rose, many Russian speakers supported. They wanted "lace panties and to Europe." In short, one - in -one, the Baltic fascists bred them, as now banderlogs in Ukraine.

          That's right and there are many examples. Many friends from the time of the USSR live there, someone could not stand it - he left. He asked one person (a good friend) why you are buying an apartment there and going to live there - he answers, but if hell is there to do - Europe is there - then he fled back from there, selling the apartment for nothing. And the rest, in the same spirit.

        Excuse me, but if a person does not know the state language and does not want to learn it, then this is his problem. And don’t download the rights here.
        For example, I from Chuvashia, we have our own language and no one forbids the yoke to learn and talk. In only the state we have Russian and everyone is obliged to know it. And state. exams also in Russian, and write over in Russian and all documents, etc. Or do we also need to be indignant that, they say, we do not want to learn Russian?

          And who told you that Russians in Latvia do not want to learn the Latvian language? And Russians in Latvia are 40% of the TOTAL population, and how many Chuvashs in Russia and in Chuvash do you study (if you want) at your own expense or state?
          It’s just that Pridurkis came up with a solution to the problem of the lack of Latvian teachers in Russian schools by closing Russian schools. First-graders should come to the school already knowing the language. What if this is not assimilation and Russophobia? And if you listened to what story is taught in Latvian schools? Russian children then shy of their origin and their parents.
          PS There is such an utterance of W. Churchill: “School teachers have power that the Prime Minister can only dream of.”

              And where can Russian children learn the language ??? If everyone around speaks Russian? 40% of the population of Latvia and almost 80% of them live in Riga, visitors are surprised when they come to Riga, they ask, where can you hear Latvian speech? And in Daugavpils, the second largest city, you will not hear Latvian speech at all. I’ll even say more, in Daugavpils you can get hold of questions at the state one. Moreover, Russian children were not taken to Latvian kindergartens, because after a couple of months the whole group began to speak Russian

          ====
          the already existing system of studying the Latvian language in Russian kindergarten groups and in Russian classes completely coped with its task. By the end of their studies, subjects in Russian classes were not given Latvian, therefore, those in power are not guided by the study or improvement of the quality of language learning, but by the struggle against the Russian language.

      Regrettably, I agree with you. I remember very well how drunken ryahs roamed the crowd around Moscow with shouts of "I do not like Russia - go to the USA." So what has changed now? Double standards again? Well, the last "killer" argument - if everything is so bad, why not leave? Or "harsh Russian service .. ruthless ..."?

Because I tried that my own kitchen and push are better, and the bathroom can’t be compared with a shrouded shower. But I do not blather the manager that he would take money from me to a minimum - as in a hostel.

    Absolutely fair remark. When Russian "patriots" do not like the indignation of the "liberals", they use as an argument - "Do not like it ?! A suitcase, a train station, Europe!" There are also such people in Latvia. But, unlike the Russian Federation, no one from Latvia because of such a trifle as the desire to learn Russian will not go to their homeland winked

        But give equal rights to the native language and culture to those who were born in Russian families, for whom the Russian language is native.
        And they say "Suitcase, train station, foreign" not to those who advocate the equal rights of their Tatar, Chechen, Tuvan (this is so), but to those who hate Russia and wish it a slavish fate.

          Do you want to give the Arabs the right to piss on the streets as they do in Kabul, for example?
          Or what would it be in every Saratov / Tver / Lipetsk court: they cut the throats of rams on holiday with small children?
          Or that our women would go in veils. so how will it violate the cultural traditions of the same Arabs?

          Maybe, nevertheless, in a normal state - a fraction of a little nationalism - must it be necessary to preserve this very state ???
          Equal rights for those who identify with a foreign culture - should not be!

          Russian emigrating to America, Australia, Chad - that's it! You are no longer Russian. You have abandoned your country and you no longer have the right to be Russian. You must accept the rules and principles and culture of that country - to which you left.

          Azerbaijani / Armenian / American / German - moved to Russia. Why did you choose Russia? Probably because. what do you want to live here?
          Then you must give up your faith. from its history, from its customs.
          You have to accept the local rules and habits, the local way of life.
          And if in your childhood cutting a ram as a holiday was, then forget about it.

          These rules should be.
          Assimilation must be in order to preserve the state and state system.

            What nonsense ... Writing on the street and cutting rams is a violation of the law. Laws must be obeyed, the traditions of the people who accepted you must be respected, but you must not forget your own.
            You write so categorically that you are about seventeen years old, although there is another assumption, but I'm afraid that they will be banned.

              I’ll hint ... In Ukraine, there are many who agree with you.


              You don’t think so. that you just don’t understand that. what are you writing about?
              Here is the same Kurban Bayram with a sharp throat of a sheep ...
              Is this an Arab tradition? Yes!
              Is this the custom of the Arabs? Yes!
              Is it an Arabs holiday? Yes!

              So how do we be?
              Or do you agree. what they. in order to comply with our rules, they must abandon their traditions. holidays, customs, or you then give them the right not to comply with our laws, rules and customs and maintain their traditions ...
              You decide.

              Only here it is not necessary about tolerance.
              Tolerance is a terrible sin ...

          Please tell me, is the Chuvash language foreign in Russia? And Russian in Latvia is considered foreign.
          "And who forbids in Latvia learns Russian?"
          Isn’t this a ban on studying the Russian language if it can only be studied privately? And a bunch of Nazis made the decision on the status of the only state language in Latvia and they wanted to spit that there were THREE under the first republic (the laws of which they refer) official languages, Latvian, Russian, German and one regional (Latgalian). And in neighboring Finland Russia, 6% are Swedes and Swedish is also the state language, and in the eastern regions, they learn Russian at the state expense.

      Too shy to ask, in Russia Latvians 40%? Well, as if in the Republics, national languages ​​are state on a par with Russian. Look Khakassia, Crimea. In Khakassia, the local population is 12% and the Khakass language is equivalent to Russian, in the Crimea there are generally three languages. Who does this bother?

      I believe you are not very strong in European law. Not “what they want,” but what does not contradict EU legal norms.
      The general principles of EU law include, in particular, the principles of protection of human rights and freedoms и non-discriminationwhich are trampled in Latvia with the tacit consent of the EU.
      In fact, the local smelly Natsiks are replacing the EU’s non-interference in their affairs with external management and their willingness to work as a sanitary cordon, doing minor dirty tricks to the eastern neighbor.

    40% of Russian-speaking people, but “non-citizens” only 22% (for 2015), that is, 18% of Russian-speaking people (and this is 360 thousand people) accepted “citizenship”. At least half of them did this at a conscious age, recognizing the "occupation" of both themselves and their parents as occupiers. So, it’s too late to protest with the slogans “Latvia is our home”.

    The old hackneyed plate of Latvian Natsik! Originally from the 90s, when EBN in a drunken stupor merged all Russians. Then they also yelled at the Russians, suitcase - station - Russia! And we will live in your apartments! They even calculated that if all the Russians left, then every Latvian would have as many as two apartments !! Many like this yanis were seduced! But what is noticeable in Riga became less and less Russian! The Russians really began to leave Latvia! This is not advertised, but I know from my friends. A year ago, they didn’t even have plans, and in a month they would move to Kaliningrad! Therefore, thanks to these idiots, the Russians finally begin to return to Russia! And the further the more. And this process cannot be stopped! And without Russian people, Latvia is doomed! By the way, many Latvians understand this, but be afraid to express it.

    Even Hungary is much stronger in protecting its compatriots abroad. The Russians in Latvia are not refugees, but the indigenous people, historically, after Batu’s invasion of Russia, the northern territories of Russia formed a new alliance with the Balts where 90% of the population were Russians and this union helped them fight off the crusaders, but then the Balts betrayed the Russians and entered into a new alliance with Poland, the Baltic nobility changed religion from Orthodoxy to Catholicism and in every way began to infringe on the Russians.
    What the Latvian authorities are doing now will not benefit this country. But Russia needs to more actively support its compatriots abroad, at least in a word, since there is no money for work. And for good, we need to actively pursue a policy of repatriation of our people to Russia - to build housing specifically for such immigrants in different cities, to provide some monthly payments for the first time, the main thing is to simplify the procedure for processing all documents. It is necessary to help those who want to return ...
    And with countries that are pursuing such an anti-Russian policy, one must talk toughly, immediately strike back, both political and economic ...

      Riga has never been a Revel, a connoisseur of history ... Riga has always been Riga, but Tallinn was Revel and Tartu was Yuriev, and almost the entire southeast of Latvia was the Vitebsk province.
      And at the expense of demography in Latvia, it doesn’t exist. Every year, 20 thousand people leave the country for permanent residence and these are people of working age. They go west, because no one expects them in Russia, moreover, you can hear from the Russians "when there well you didn’t go. "I think that if the Russian authorities offered an approximately equal exchange (apartment, work, settlement), very many would have left.

        Vintorezu. Well said. Russian speakers did not live on farms, only in cities. yes to villages in Latgale. 90% of Russian-speaking people now live in Riga and Daugavpils. "Equitable exchange", it must be understood, this is Moscow and St. Petersburg, and not the outskirts. Come up with something else. You didn’t want to go to Russia and you won’t go now. Even in your "fat years", one "Russian-speaking" theater figure shook his non-citizen passport and proudly declared that he could ride around Europe without a visa. Russia has achieved its prosperity through hard work and blood, but give you everything for free?

    Strange, however, life sometimes turns. In truth, these all of Latvia are Russian lands by law. I explain. Three hundred years ago after the end of the Northern War, the Nishtadt Peace Treaty was signed between Sweden and Russia, which changed, in particular, the Russian-Swedish border, previously fixed by the Stolbovsky Peace Treaty of 1617. This Peace Treaty provided for Russia to pay Sweden a lot of money for transferring the Baltic States, Karelia with Ingermanland and other lands of Sweden into Russian ownership. Russia was supposed to pay Sweden two million thalers in a timely manner, with only silver coin. As a result, in 1727, the Swedish king Frederick I handed over to the Russian ambassador in Stockholm, Prince Vasily Lukich Dolgorukov, a receipt on Sweden's acceptance of two million thalers (which is about 350 billion dollars at the current exchange rate).
    The terms of the deal, signed by the Swedish king, in particular, are as follows: "... for himself and his descendants and heirs to the throne of Svej and the kingdom of Svejskiy to His Royal Majesty and His descendants and heirs of the Russian state in perfect and IMMEDIATE AND ETERNAL Possession and OWNERSHIP in this war, through His Majesty of Tsartvija weapons from the crown of Svejskie conquered provinces: Livonia, Estonia, Ingermanland and part of Karelia with the district of Vyborg Lena, which is indicated below in the article of demarcation, and is described with cities and fortresses: Riga, Dunamind, Pernava, Revel, Derp Vyborg, Kexholm, and all the other relevant cities, fortresses, harbors, places, districts, shores with islands: Ezel, Dago and Menom and all the others from the Courland border along the Livonian, Estland and Ingermanland shores and on the side of the wreck from Revel to the fairway and Vyborg on the side of the south and the rest of the lying islands with all so on these islands, as in the aforementioned provinces, cities and places being acquired by residents and settlements ... ”(Complete collection of laws of the Russian Empire, vol. VI. St. Petersburg, 1830, p. 423).
    Well, where is our valiant diplomacy? Where are our young international lawyers? Why aren’t they applying to international European courts? If only they would hint, where is the money? Indeed, for every Russian living in this same Latvia, a rather round amount is due (moreover with interest!).

      I’ll even tell you more, almost all of these 40% ((except for those who don’t work at all), among them there are a lot of working pensioners, since you can’t live on one pension with our prices, and we also charge taxes on pensioners) almost all these 40% earn their money and pay taxes, and those who decide what language to speak live at the expense of the budget (officials), and officials have children and relatives and all are attached to warm budget places and get very good salaries and at the same time, how would pay taxes (how can you pay taxes (fill the treasury) if you are a state employee?).

    Well, dude is right.
    Well, why now is Latvia such a large population,
    if there is less work for them?
    The basic composition of this population is former Soviet citizens,
    pre-retirement and retirement age, which are useless for the country.
    And leaving them from Latvia will only reduce the social burden on the country's budget.
