Today, an action in defense of the Ukrainian language has taken place near the Verkhovna Rada. The public opposed the bill of “servants of the people” Maxym Buzhansky, which could return Russian-language education to educational institutions.
Thousands of Ukrainians came out for the preservation of the Ukrainian language. After the bans that the Ukrainian language endured throughout its existence, this bill is part of a Russian revenge aimed at destroying the achievements of Ukrainian society. We perceive the attack on the language as an attack on Ukraine and Ukrainian identity.
Ukraine occupies a special place in Russia’s plans to restore the empire within its former borders. With our state, the Russian Federation is waging a fierce struggle for destruction.
The Russian language remains a powerful weapon in this struggle. The preservation of the Russian-speaking environment in Ukraine is one of the strategic tasks of Russia.
It is natural that the integration ambitions of the Kremlin are hindered most of all by the Ukrainian language, the expansion of the spheres of its application, the activation of its cultural and creative potential, which strengthens the national identity of the Ukrainian population.
