Terrorists in Luhansk ban study of Ukrainian history and language


War in the Donbas

Terrorists in Luhansk banned the study of Ukrainian history and language in schools.

In local schools in Luhansk, the Russian occupation forces and their collaborators in the Donbas prohibit studying of Ukrainian language and history.

This information was shared by Andriy Lysenko, spokesperson of the analytical center for the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council.

In his words, members of so-called “Luhansk People’s Republic” (LNR) are trying to move Luhansk to “Russian standards.”

“In schools terrorists are prohibiting study of Ukrainian history, language, and literature. Representatives of self-proclaimed ‘new government’ are demanding to remove all information posted on information stands in Ukrainian and replace it by Russian. Despite it, schools continue to use the textbooks published in Ukraine. They are also forcing the officials from local city government to study laws of Russian Federation,” says Andriy Lysenko.

    Freedom and minority rights only go in one direction for the separatists. Even that will be short lived. Ultimately no one will have freedom or rights if they ever manage to fully comply with ‘Russian Standards’.

    I’m curious how all the appeasers like Obama, Merkl, NATO and the United Nations feel about these continuing violations of human rights of Ukrainian citizens in Donbass and the Tatars in Crimea, all in the name of “PROTECTING RUSSIAN SPEAKERS”? Hopefully the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and the International Court of Justice in The Hague are gearing up for a busy sessions once these terrorists get captured and brought to justice for their crimes against humanity and the human rights violations that Putin and his minions have undertaken.

    It’s ridiculous the Western World does not feel this is worth getting involved in. Too bad Ukraine wasn’t oil rich. Every current Western leader that does not speak up about these injustices and tolerates the ongoing Russification of ethnic groups is complicit and will forever be know for not protecting the innocents.

    Whether you are talking about ISIS or the separatists thugs the world over are the same.
