Farion: Russian-Speaking Residents Unwilling to Speak Ukrainian Should Be Deprived of Education and Work November 17, 2016 Analysis Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard 21:22:18 17/11/2016 jpgazeta.ru Irina Farion: Russian-speaking residents of Ukraine who do not want to transition to the Ukrainian language should be deprived of the right to education and work… She declared this on the air of Radio Svoboda as a former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada and member of the nationalist “Svoboda”. “Putin comes here with what motivation? It is very simple. He defends the “Russian speaking population”. We absolutely must not pay attention to them at all – we need to stubbornly do our affairs. It is the citizens of Ukraine who need to comply with the law. And the law is the 10th article of the Constitution of Ukraine. But if you don’t comply with the law, you shouldn’t get an education, a job. How long are we going to pay attention to some strange people who cannot integrate into Ukrainian society in any way?” Farion declared. In case Irina Farion forgot, we will remind – article 10 of the Constitution of Ukraine states: “The State language in Ukraine is the Ukrainian language. The State ensures the comprehensive development and functioning of the Ukrainian language in all spheres of social life throughout the entire territory of Ukraine. In Ukraine, the free development, use and protection of Russian, and other languages of national minorities of Ukraine, is guaranteed. The State promotes the learning of languages of international communication. The use of languages in Ukraine is guaranteed by the Constitution of Ukraine and is determined by law.” It is necessary to remind Ukrainian “patriots” that the civil war in Ukraine, started after the coup on February 22nd-23rd, 2014, was underlined in the media by numerous verbalisations of villains like Farion or Mosiychuk, stating that Russian-speakers should be forbidden from speaking their language, and that in Crimea “trains of friendship” of Right Sector must be sent. So it is Farion who has a direct relationship with the collapse of Ukraine and the distress that fell on the heads of its inhabitants. So it is exactly those like Farion that true patriots of Ukraine can, without any responsibility can call the agents of whoever, but certainly not of Ukraine, as it is precisely them who buried Ukraine as a state, and permanently discredited the idea of the Ukrainian nation.
