Zelenskyy continues a monstrous experiment to turn Ukrainians into the enemies of Russians

Summary of Disinformation

Volodymyr Zelenskyy makes the same speeches as Poroshenko did. It means that the monstrous experiment on turning Ukraine’s residents into the enemies of Russians will continue. Ukrainian army and repressive entities eliminate Russian cultural code holders. Some of them are killed with missiles and bullets. Others are eliminated morally, through imprisonment, church captures and reformatting children into Ukrainians through education and activities of patriotic organisations.

This message is a mix of ungrounded conspiracies and generalizations aimed at discrediting the Ukrainian authorities, the Ukrainian army, and at misrepresenting Ukraine's domestic policies. It is consistent with common pro-Kremlin narratives about Ukrainian statehood, discrimination against Russian speakers and Russophobia.

The recent law on the Ukrainian language does not forbid the use of Russian or other languages in private communication and religious ceremonies. Moreover, Russian and other languages can be present in book publishing, the press, including radio and television, education and the service sector. The law allows the use of other languages in the healthcare system and in law enforcement. In addition to this, the law stipulates that in accordance with the European Charter for Regional Languages and Languages of National Minorities, the government should develop a law safeguarding language-rights of the minorities within six months of the language law entering into force.
