Adopted in first reading by the state Duma the draft contained a proposal to establish a Fund for the support of native languages that would be involved in, including the issues of science in this field, the development of appropriate methods in education. Later, however, the question of creation of the Fund was included in the project, since it is not subject to regulation of the education act.

«The Fund will be formed with the aim of creating conditions for the preservation and study of the native languages of the peoples of our country. These languages are our national heritage and historical and cultural heritage. The founders of the Fund will be the Ministry of education and the FAEA», — said Barinov.

According to him, proposed by the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Fund «Russian world» Lyudmila Verbitskaya and Chairman of the Board, head of the Duma Committee for education and science Vyacheslav Nikonov, the idea was supported by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Barinov said that the Fund will help to solve actual problems in the spheres of language policy and harmonization of interethnic relations.
