WHY? Ukraine had long been a part of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union where utmost proficiency of Russian language by its population was strongly encouraged by the State.
Russian language has an official status of a “minority language”, while Ukrainian language has a status of the “state language”, whereby e.g. all official correspondence by State officials should be maintained in Ukrainian.
Ukrainians use Cyrillic, more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrillic... but your computer may not show Cyrillic characters, details at http://goukraineexpat.info/talk_your_way
|FUTURE TRENDS: October 1, 2012 - all media – Poll: “53.8% of Ukrainians are against granting official status to the Russian language, 38.4% support such move.”|
