MOSCOW, June 29 – RIA Novosti. A court in Kyiv ordered the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine to exclude the Russian language from the police clearance certificates, Espresso reports on Wednesday.
“The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine lost the appeal in which it defended the mandatory Russian language in the police clearance certificates. Today, the Sixth Administrative Court of Appeal (of the city of Kyiv – ed.) rejected the appeal of the Ministry of Internal Affairs,” the plaintiff Svyatoslav Litinsky was quoted as saying by the publication.
In recent years, the use of the Russian language has been massively banned in Ukraine, the authorities have enshrined this at the legislative level. For example, the executive committee of the Nikolaev City Council reported that the use of the Russian language would be prohibited in Nikolaev schools from September 1 this year. From January 16, 2022, language quotas for nationwide print media began to operate.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said earlier that the Ukrainian authorities have been pursuing a policy of aggressive de-Russification and forced assimilation for many years. He noted that Russia wants to see Ukraine as friendly, without a ban on the Russian language and Russian culture.
