Russian Lib Dems to Introduce Fines for Using Foreign Words

The Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) has submitted a bill imposing fines of up to 50,000 rubles (about $1,700) on officials for using foreign words that have Russian equivalents in public speeches.

      LDPR deputies said the use of “American and British” loanwords, such as "dealer", "manager", "single", "session", "boutique" and other words, which have equivalents in Russian language, should be penalized with fines of 2,000 to 2,500 rubles ($65 to $82) for individuals, 4,000 to 5,000 rubles ($131 to $164) for officials and 40,000 to 50,000 rubles ($1,315 to $1,700) for corporate entities.

      In the document accompanying the bill, the LDPR deputies explain that the Russian language is currently littered with unnecessary foreign words and expressions, and it is dangerous of the national culture and identify. There is no other effective way to combat this situation than to oblige official persons to mind their speech.
