Russian delegation to PACE wants debate on language issue in Ukraine – MP

The Russians allege Ukraine has been conducting a “targeted aggressive campaign” against the Russian language.

Member of the Ukrainian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) and MP from Ukraine’s European Solidarity Party Oleksii Honcharenko says the Russian delegation to PACE is initiating a debate on the language issue in Ukraine.

“The Russian delegation to PACE is initiating a debate on the language issue in Ukraine,” he wrote on Telegram and shared a copy of the respective letter.

Honcharenko clarified Russia’s concern was caused by the entry into force of Article 30 of the Law of Ukraine on ensuring the functioning of Ukrainian as the official language.

“In their opinion, Ukraine has been conducting a ‘targeted aggressive campaign’ against the Russian language,” he added.

Language law: Background

  • On January 16, 2021, the provisions of the law on the obligatory use of the Ukrainian language in the consumer services industry came into force.
  • Article 30 of the Law of Ukraine on ensuring the functioning of Ukrainian as the official language stipulates that all service providers, regardless of their form of ownership, shall serve consumers and provide information about goods and services in Ukrainian.
  • On April 25, 2019, the language bill, which suggests the gradual implementation of its provisions, was passed by the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament.

    Not aggressive enough. No Russian media should be allowed in Ukraine. Why is the trash site RT still accessible in Ukraine? It’s nothing but a vile, filthy propaganda site.

    • What language to use in Ukraine is all up to the people and the government of Ukraine, not Russia! What if Norway started to complain about the use of the Swedish language in parts of Sweden that earlier belonged to Norway 🙂

    • This is just a distraction by the Moskali. We recently posted that Ukraine wants to bring up Russia’s human rights abuses in Ukraine to PACE. Including rape, murder, theft, torture, assassinations, kidnapping, etc. So Putin’s answer is to conflate the situation by bringing up their assertion that Ukrainians don’t have the sovereign right to speak Ukrainian in Ukraine and make their own laws.
      Of course, it must be KILLING the Moskali business owners in Ukraine having to speak Ukrainian now :))))

  • Russians were inserted there after Lenin and Stalin’s genocides. The same policy of invasion, occupation, murder and race replacement that has been inflicted on Ukraine for centuries is still being carried right now.
