The Day of the Russian Language is an international day dedicated to the Russian language. If we consider all the Slavic languages, Russian is the most common in the whole world. Its geographical location goes beyond Russia itself, this language is spoken on every continent in the world. There is a list of ten languages that are most common around the world and of course, there is the great Russian language.
This is a holiday that was established by the UN in 2010, and in the Russian Federation they started celebrating it in 2011 as a Russian national holiday. It is celebrated on June 6, the birthday of the great Russian poet Pushkin.
- Today, Pushkin is deservedly known as the true creator of the literary Russian language. Pushkin did so much for the Russian language that we can talk endlessly about his merits in this field. Many people know this man outside their homeland and are happy to read his works in the original, trying to understand the mysterious Russian soul through words, at least a little, Prof. Dr. Larisa Čović, Dean of the Faculty of Philological Sciences.
