DISINFO: Ukrainian language inspectors beat people for speaking Russian, send them to correctional labor camps
In Ukraine, they will be sent to correctional labour (camps) for using the Russian language instead of Ukrainian. The so-called “language inspectors” have already begun to work in the country; they have beaten a bus driver in the Kyiv region for speaking Russian.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the status of Russian language in Ukraine. Ukraine has no plans to create an institution of “language inspectors”, nor it is foreseen in the law “On ensuring the functioning of the Ukrainian language as the state language”. "Language inspectors" are a fabrication of disinformation; they do not exist in Ukraine.
