Russian President Wants Cyrillic Internet Domain
· 3

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says Russia needs to be assigned an Internet domain name in the Cyrillic script in an effort to promote Russian as an international language.

The Kremlin is worried that Russian, once the main language in the Soviet Union is being used less because of local languages and the influence of English.

Medvedev said that 300 million people worldwide used Russian media and that a Cyrillic domain name would play an important role in raising the importance of Russian as a language.
