Unfortunately Russian Federation law forces all 27 official regional languages of Russia to use Cyrillic as the official writing system no matter what the language (including languages that were written in Arabic, Tibetan and Latin characters.)

This is a controversial issue for many ethnic groups that don't want to use Cyrillic.

The Russian Empire never had such an issue — and let everyone use whatever writing system they wanted — Arabic script, Tibetan, Chinese, etc.
