Summary of Disinformation

In Kiev there is not a single Russian-language school.

Disproof

It is a recurring theme in pro-Kremlin disinformation that Russian-speakers are being marginalised in Ukraine. According to the Kyiv City State Administration, in response to the request of StopFake, in the academic year 2017-2018 in Kiev there are 16 schools with the Russian language of instruction. In 9 of them, instruction is carried out in two languages, that is, from two parallel classes the student can choose either the one where he is taught in Russian or in Ukrainian.
