Summary/Abstract: We discuss the main issues connected with the functioning of the Russian language abroad. Language is considered as a multidimensional entity, this implies a multiplicity and complementarity of its social statuses and sociolinguistic functions. The special attention is drawn to the role of the Russian language in education and its possible ability to integrate some cultural and civilizational areas.
