Very late but left

    A book collection on the materials of the UNESCO Forum in Yakutia on Lena Pillars was released. We, the participants, have been waiting for it for a long time, because about two years have passed since the conference and the adoption of the so-called Lena resolution .

    At a conference with representatives of 15 countries, political, ethical, sociocultural, psychological and other aspects of multilingualism were discussed, the linguistic situation in certain regions of Russia and the world, the activities of various organizations and states to preserve linguistic and cultural diversity were highlighted. In addition to purely linguistic sections, there were sections devoted to multilingualism in cyberspace, the Internet and other media.
