    At 60 years of age, if you think Russian is necessary for learning, means you have learnt FA in your life.

    “Mostly people over 60 consider the Russian language necessary”
    Those 60 and older are Soviet-era people and so it’s of no surprise. The young Ukrainian people mostly prefer to learn a Western language, and no doubt, this is in large part thanks to the Moscow runt.
