Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Russian Language Day 

June 6th, on the birthday of the great Russian poet A.S. Pushkin, within the framework of the program for the support and development of multilingualism and cultural diversity, the United Nations celebrates the Day of the Russian Language. One of the goals of this program is to maintain equality in all six official languages ​​of the United Nations: English, Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, Russian and French.

The decision to hold the Days of Languages ​​was taken by the Department of Public Information (now the Department of Global Communications) on the eve of the International Mother Language Day, celebrated annually on February 21st at the initiative of UNESCO.

The purpose of the UN Languages ​​Days is to raise awareness of the history, culture and development of each of the six official UN languages among the staff of the Organization. Each language has the opportunity to find its own unique approach and develop its own program of activities for the day, including inviting famous poets and writers and developing informational and thematic materials.
