Of course I do. There should be exactly the same number of Russian schools in Riga as there are Latvian schools in Moscow, and there should be as many hours of teaching Russian in Latvia as there are hours of teaching Latvian in Russia.

Oddly enough - I support. The small country wants to preserve its identity as opposed to the "melting pot of cultures" that Russia has always been. I don't see anything reprehensible in this. It's just that Russians who live in Latvia need to decide on their attitude to the current circumstances. The empire is gone, and Big Brother doesn't really give a shit about his own people. He just left them to their fate. And now the abandoned will have to talk on equal terms with the former "sponsors", and even vice versa. It's all sad.

What is happening in Latvia cannot be called anything other than the policy of apartheid.

I was born in Latvia, my mother was born in Latvia, my father was born in Latvia. None of us three (as well as many more Russians in Latvia) have the right to Latvian citizenship. Instead, such people receive a residence permit (non-citizen passport) and do not have many of the rights that citizens have. For example, in order to travel abroad, non-citizens must obtain a visa, even if there is a visa-free agreement between this country and Latvia (even to Europe). My mother, at one time, was literally kicked out of the country. Arriving in Latvia to solve some bureaucratic problems, she, among other documents, gave her passport. They returned it to her only when she said that she generally wanted to leave this country and forget about everything, like a terrible dream.

In the two million country, about a million are Russians. I do not know how many of this million have Latvian citizenship, but this is not the point. The bottom line is that for almost thirty years in Latvia there was a very clear division between Russian and Latvian schools. It got to the point that the Russian was simply not accepted into the Latvian school. There is a Latvian lesson in Russian schools, but this is so little that children do not learn the language. Thus, two societies have developed in Latvia, Russians and Latvians, between which there are quite few points of contact.

I believe that education in Latvia should be in Latvian. I believe that Russian in Latvia should be taught from the first grade as a second (compulsory) language. But all this should have started thirty years ago, when Latvia gained independence. Even then, the government was obliged to begin to assimilate the million Russians who ended up in Latvia during the 50 years of Russian occupation. But what is happening now is an attempt to catch up with this assimilation in a few years. Of course, this does not resonate in the soul of Russian Latvians.
