The Ministry of Education said that the programs of subjects “Foreign Literature” and “Literature” have been changed in terms of the study of works by Russian and Belarusian writers.

“The works of Russian and Belarusian authors have been removed from the curriculum. But the works of foreign writers have been added in line with the literary process and with the age features of students,” said the Ministry of Education.
