for me to settle and argument and i will bow to the superior knowledge of the answers. and all should relate to SOVIET times only,not Russia....
following questions:
Schoolbooks, where they printed and used in Russian language only? or also in local language? ( Georgian, Chechen? Armenian,etc.)
In which language was taught in school, NOT in Russia but,for instance, the above mentioned states. And was it the FIST language?
Was for instance in Georgian schools the lessons in Georgian language. And russian language was thought as -foreign- language, like for instance now English or French?

What, you've got into the dispute with some The Great Specialist On USSR, like Yak, who read "Gulag arhipelag"® and therefore now knows The TruthЪ © ? :D

It was depending on which language was basic in the particular school. For example, in smaller USSR (Ukrainian Soviet Socialistic Republic), the part of bigger USSR, where I was born, schools had at least 2 basic languages of teaching - Russian or Ukrainian. So in the schools with Ukrainian language of teaching all schoolbooks were in Ukrainian, but learning Russian language was obligatory. In the schools with Russian language of teaching all schoolbooks were in Russian, but learning Ukranian language was not obligatory (although mentioned to learn by default).
Number of schools varied on the region. For example, in my town in Donbass there were 30+ schools with Russian language of teaching and 2 schools with Ukrainian language of teaching. In Western areas of USSR the ratio was different I think.
