The humiliation of the Russian language [in Ukraine] is a humiliation of the world culture. The language laws adopted in the Baltic republics are a humiliation of the Russian language. The territory that is now called Ukraine, is in fact the territory of Russia, where Ukrainians live.
No evidence of humiliation of the Russian language in Ukraine now. No evidence of humiliating Russian language in the newly adopted Ukrainian education law either. Ukrainian authorities have submitted the text to the Venice Commission for an opinion which shall be delivered by the end of 2017. // After the collapse of the USSR, the territorial sovereignty of Ukraine, as an independent state, was recognized by the international community: both the UN and Russia.
