Leader of the so-called "DNR" Denis Pushilin has proposed amending the "constitution" of the quasi-state to deprive the Ukrainian language of the status of "state". This is reported by separatist media.
Pushilin wants to determine the status of the Russian language as the only "state" in the occupied territory of the Donetsk oblast.
The leader of the "republic" conditioned his initiatives "by the need for an intensive integration process" of the "DNR" with the Russian Federation".
According to the proposals of Pushilin, "Ukrainian, like the languages of other peoples of the region, will be taught taking into account wishes of the parents and possibilities of the educational organization".
In his opinion, such actions of the occupation authorities "do not violate the rights of the citizens", in particular, to use the Ukrainian language "as a language of private communication".
Let us recall that Russian and Ukrainian were "state" languages in the occupied territory up to now.
As previously reported, wives of miners of the occupied Donbass complained to Putin about looter Pushilin.
