Ethnic Russians in Hungary plan to apply for minority status

Monday, December 14, 2015

The Coordination Council of Russian Compatriots plan to apply for minority status for ethnic Russians living in Hungary.

"We submit an application to the Hungarian government soon," announced Tatiana Kern the President of the Russian Compatriots Coordination Council.

For Russians to be recognized as an ethnic minority is important because the minority status can help the preservation and dissemination of Russian language and culture said Kern adding that they've already started the legal proceedings.

According to current regulations, 12 nationalities and ethnic minorities are recognized by the law.

Although a significant number of other national minorities also live in the country, they haven't yet met the criteria for obtaining minority status, among them Russians, Arabs, Chinese, and Bunjevci.

She just said why – they want to preserve their language and culture. Minority status comes with certain privileges and minorities can better preserve their culture.

By the way the first two comments are total nonsense.

Colonists don't live in this part of the world.

Were they born here?
Are they poor refugess?
How big is their immediate community.
Why are they here ?
And what do they plan to do with the money?
How much money do they want and for how long?
Or do they just want gov. money like the gypies ect. to pay for new dresses.

Irrelevant questions!
The Russians are entitled to all the privileges that other minorities enjoy, if they meet the criteria.
