A city in southern Ukraine stops using the Russian language

(MENAFN) Ekaterina Stokolias, a member of the executive committee of the Nikolayev city council, said on Saturday that the Russian language would be banned in schools in the city.

She said in a Facebook post that the committee made the decision on Friday.

Stokolias noted, “As of September 1, no clubs, courses, junior classes or educational designs with the Russian language. Finally! Thank you to all my colleagues!”

She also included a graphic of a cat holding a heart in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. “Language Matters” and “Everything Matters” are the photo captions.

The statement to Nikolayev came after Ukraine’s Deputy Education and Science Minister Andrey Vitrenko announced earlier this month that the administration intended to revise the school curriculum in many areas. , including foreign literature, international history and Ukrainian history. The world-famous work “War and Peace” by Russian writer Leo Tolstoy will be particularly overlooked, as it depicts Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812.
