Russian Community of Azerbaijan to increase activity
Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 6 / Trend E.Tariverdiyeva /
The Russian Community of Azerbaijan intends to participate more actively in the social and political life of the country.
"We try to integrate into the country's social and political life," Community Chairman Mikhail Zabelin told journalists today. "But the Russian community has not yet distinguished itself in this manner, but we are expanding our mission."
The community also plans to become active in political party activities and electoral processes.
"Today, there are no laws that would infringe the rights of national minorities in Azerbaijan, but it is important to know the state language in order to integrate," he said. "Thus in the near future, we have set the task of strengthening the study of the Azerbaijani language. Without this, it is impossible to take part in public life."
Today, Baku hosts the Third Congress of the Russian Community of Azerbaijan.
