The authority of the Crimea’s key port city Sevastopol has granted the Russian language the official status in the autonomous republic, meaning it can now be used in official documents. A decree to this effect was signed Monday by the acting administration chief Dmitry Belik.

The statement says that the status of the Russian language has been upgraded in accordance with international laws and with regard to the fact that it is the majority language in the city.

Until recently, the city authority has been compelled to use the minority Ukrainian language in all official papers.
