Russian culture and the Russian language are treated with great love and respect in Azerbaijan. Education in Russian is carried out in Azerbaijan to the same extent as in Soviet times. Not a single Russian school has been closed down here. We have more than 400 such schools today. Almost all institutions of higher education in Azerbaijan teach in Russian as well. Newspapers are published in the Russian language, and there are even more of them now than in Soviet times. All this is a positive factor of our bilateral relations and a good help to our business communities in establishing closer cooperation and contacts.
