Many former SU countries are rushing to join the NATO, and their new master promotes the usage of English, of course.



Russian is useful in all ex-Soviet states, for instance in Kazakhstan it's the first spoken language, Kazakh being the 2nd. I was reffering to the Slavic-speaking countries, in which Russian is not useful (except for Ukraine and Belarus).

I guess NATO has nothing to do with languages. Russian is still present in most of the ex-Soviet States, you can hear it everywhere on the streets, television, newspapers and so on.
