English may disappear from schools in Crimea temporarily occupied by the Russian Federation . Instead of foreign languages, they will study “their languages”.

This was stated by the so-called “Speaker of the State Council of Crimea” Vladimir Konstantinov in a commentary to Russian propagandists.

“Languages ​​are a controversial issue for me, very controversial: why should we blindly follow the path of the English language? Why learn what is not necessary if a person will never go to London?” – said Putin’s accomplice.

According to him, “stupidly following a foreign civilization is dangerous.”

“We make the child a hostage – he will say that I know English, and I wonder what kind of England it is. Let’s learn our languages, develop our languages! The English have been at war with us for a thousand years, and we continue to study them, spend money on teachers , we spend time – and then there is not enough time for history,” Konstantinov said.

At the same time, he stated that he did not study English at school, but, if necessary, mastered it in two years. The collaborator suggested creating foreign language courses for those who really need it.

As UNIAN previously reported, covert mobilization in the Russian Federation has failed. The Kremlin decided to send soldiers from the temporarily occupied Crimea to the war against Ukraine , who swore their oath in 2014.

    A child has more brains than a stupid ruskie. I guess they should exit their shithole once in a while and travel the globe to see which language they need the most to communicate with. Most tens of thousands of businesses across the world, for example, won’t even look at you if you don’t know English. And the examples go on where you need English.
