The Ministry of education recommended the use of the letter e in official documents. The head of the Ministry Dmitry Livanov said on air of radio “Komsomolskaya Pravda”.
“E and e is called differently, I know this problem, but we did everything we could: there is a guidance letter from the Ministry of education and science, which recommends that all organs in the documents, certificates and so forth to write names correctly. If there is a letter “e”, then write two points that distinguish it from the letter “e”, — he said (quoted by “RIA Novosti”).
The Minister added that owners of the names with the letter “e” must always control the writing of names in official documents.
In 2009 Russia’s Supreme court ruled that when writing the names of the citizens can be used and the letter E. the Reason for this was that Russians often encountered problems in obtaining documents, in particular, in the Pension Fund.
