"Russian President Vladimir Putin has decided at the start of his new term to end his country's army operations and transfer the money saved in its entirety to supporting work to revitalize minority languages spoken in Russia. New schools and universities will immediately be founded in Russia in which teaching will take place exclusively in minority languages. In addition, Putin has promised to establish new radio stations and television channels which will broadcast programming in minority languages all day long. In the areas with the strongest minority language presence, he is considering stopping education in Russian in schools and limiting the broadcast range of Russian-language radio and television stations so that speakers of minority languages in rural areas may live in peace without majority-language propaganda clogging up their everyday lives through mass media and educational institutes. Cities will be made bilingual, so that all authorities must provide services in (at least) two languages. Putin promises that officials who have not made the effort to learn the minority language within one year will be dismissed from their posts. At the same time Putin wished everyone a happy April Fools' Day."
