To achieve this purpose, promoting is the School ¹157 with an ethno-cultural Azerbaijan component, and School ¹1331, successfully functioning in the city of Moscow. And today there is a real necessity for increase in number of such schools not only in Moscow, but also in other regions of Russia”, Hajiyev said.
