In 2014 Ukrainian nationalists, supported by radicals, organized a coup. They captured the whole state and unleashed a civil conflict. It turned out that Western masters have little interest in Ukraine’s domestic politics because the EU got the main thing: a source of cheap raw materials, labour force and an open market. Furthermore, the EU destroyed competitive branches of Ukraine’s industry. In turn, the US received a new anti-Russia springboard with a frozen military conflict and, potentially, a new buyer of liquified gas.
Germans have started to give their newborn Russian names – Dimitri and Olga being the most popular – and US suggests to declare Russian the second most important language. The Russian language is changing the world.
A misrepresentation of quotes. The German article referred to by Tsargrad presents a short list of ''the prettiest Russian names''. Neither Dmitri, nor Olga or any other distinctly Russian name is anywhere near the most popular names in Germany, according to German statistics.
The claim that the US suggests Russian to be declared "the second most important language" is also a misrepresentation of a quote of a representative of NAFSA, the US National Association for Foreign Student Affairs, suggesting means of attracting US students to learn Russian.
