Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed legislation that bans government officials from using foreign words in official documents and correspondence as well as while carrying out their duties.

“When using Russian as the state language of the Russian Federation, it is not allowed to use words and expressions that do not correspond to the norms of modern literary Russian language,” the law published Tuesday said.

The exception, according to the law, is the use of “foreign words which do not have widely used corresponding equivalents in Russian.”

A list of foreign words that can be used will be compiled by a government commission and will be published separately, the Kommersant business daily reported.

A number of Russian political figures vowed to protect the Russian language from Western influence due to what they called “Russophobia” and “attacks on everything connected with Russia.”
