Abstract

This study discusses the National Policy of the Kyrgyz Republic towards the Russian minority after 1991. In the first chapter, the Soviet Nationality Policy and History of Settlement of the Russians into Kyrgystan were examined. The central part of the study is the second chapter, which focuses on the National Policy of the new independent state, and Social Organizations of Kyrgyzstan People’s Assembly, including Slavic Foundation. Hereby, according to local sources, Kyrgyzstan People’s Assembly’s function, structure, Congresses; and Slavic Foundation’s role and works were analyzed. The last chapter deals with the main problems of the Russians in the Republic such as bilingualism, dual citizenship, and migration. As a result, this study shows that the national policy of the Kyrgyz Republic towards the Russian minority is rationally positive since the Russians living in Kyrgyzstan have a full right for developing their history, culture, and customs; the status of Russian is an official language in the Republic; and social organizations and Slavonic-Kyrgyz university are established to support the Russian minority in Kyrgyzstan.
