Xeberinvar.com -reports that- The eradication of the Russian language in Ukraine violates the country's Constitution. This position was shared by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Maria Zakharova in her Telegram channel.

According to the diplomat, Kiev recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of its basic law. The representative of the Foreign Ministry quoted Ruslan Bortnik, director of the Ukrainian Institute for Analysis and Policy Management , as saying that more than 78 percent of the articles of the Ukrainian Constitution are regularly violated. In particular, she recalled the tenth article, according to which the country guarantees the free development, use and protection of Russian and other languages ​​of national minorities.

“Total legal degeneration, a humanitarian catastrophe in the east of the country, the rampant neo-Nazi sentiment, the Maidan experience of coups d'état - all this was not provided for in the Constitution of Ukraine,” Zakharova said.

In April 2019, the Verkhovna Rada

adopted the law "On ensuring the functioning of the Ukrainian language as the state language." He endows "Mova" with the status of the only state language in all spheres of public life, with the exception of religious rites and private communication.

In June, 65 percent of Ukrainians surveyed said they use Russian for everyday communication. At the same time, 14.1 percent of respondents speak mainly Russian, and 24.2 percent of respondents use it in everyday life on a par with the Ukrainian language.
