Babchenko: Putin, not Poroshenko, has destroyed future of Russian language in Ukraine

Babchenko: Putin, not Poroshenko, has destroyed future of Russian language in Ukraine

Only a year ago, journalist Arkady Babchenko says in a Facebook post, discussions about making Russian a state language in Ukraine were “completely natural” and didn’t elicit “any particular antagonism”. … But now, he says, even he understands that any possibility of giving Russian official status in Ukraine has been lost for at least “a century and a half.”

In the medium term, Babchenko says, “Ukraine also will shift to English” in place of Russian, and that will mean that “the points of contact” between the two peoples will be “lost.” “To force Russian-speaking Kyiv to hate the Russian language and to lose in one year 40 million people who had been loyal to that language, one must really be the very greatest of politicians.”
