That's a very controversial law, but one correction is due
nonetheless: "for all *state* languages".
Constitution says that the republics shall have the right to institute
their own state languages. This law puts a constraint on that right.
My understanding is that if a republic wants to institute a state
language that is not written in cyrillic, the decision must be made at
a federal level.
