Ukraine's language law violates rights of Russian-speakers

Ukraine’s parliament has passed a law requiring the use of the Ukrainian language in almost all aspects of public life. According to RISS expert Oleg Nemensky, this law was an attempt by Kiev to repress Russian-speakers. "Terror of Ukrainization is becoming normal in Ukraine. It is impossible to defend the rights of the Russian-speaking population. Nationalist organizations are totally unpunished. Kiev has invented imaginary Russian threats and Russian-speaking people are perceived as representatives of the fifth column. The West, which is considered as a zone of democracy, keeps its eyes closed," he said.
