Russian Duma Speaker suggests Armenia to accept Russian as second official language

Speaker of the Russian State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin suggests that Armenia accept Russian as second official language for the national driving license to be recognized on the territory of Russia.

The Russian law that came into force on July 1, 2017 prohibits drivers with foreign driving licenses to work in the country. At the same time the State Duma adopted a law on July 14 allowing citizens of Kyrgyzstan (where Russian is a second official language) to work as professional drivers in Russia.

“The measure will automatically apply to Armenia, should the country declare Russian as a second official language,”Volodin said at a meeting with Ara Babloyan, Speaker of the Armenian National Assembly.
