In fact, language is sometimes such a powerful force that it can transcend or replace the resilient forces of ethnic or cultural identity. However, just as language has such an impressive ability to transcend ethnic and cultural barriers to unite disparate peoples, it has the equal ability to stir powerful nationalistic, ethnic, and cultural passions in groups of people who feel their language is under attack.

This is precisely because language is more than just a tool for communication- it is a basic element of group identity. It is within this framework that this thesis examines the language policies of the former Soviet Union and its successor state, the Russian Federation. The thesis concludes that the language policy coming out of the Kremlin today is simply a continuation of the Soviet policy of using language as tool to homogenize those who are near the seat of power and exert pressure and influence in places that are removed from it.
