Young people are burning blue and white flag of Regions Party

Representatives of youth organizations have burned a Regions Party flag in front of Lviv Regional Council in protest against the passing of the language bill that was submitted by Regions Party members Serhiy Kivalov and Vadym Kolesnichenko.

A member of the Student's Svoboda organization, Vasyl Moldavan, said on Saturday that the office of the Regions Party was set on fire in Kryvy Rih.

"So, Lviv residents decided to join the protest by burning the ruling party's flag," reads a statement of the Svoboda All-Ukrainian Union.

The press service of the union also said that a festival of Ukrainian songs would be held near Lviv Regional Council on Saturday night.

The opposition shot themselves in the foot and the convicted criminal thief Tymoshenko (Tymoshenko on language law: Yanukovych declared war on whole nation) again proved that she is full of crap. LOL :D

The orange losers who make funny noises on the streets are PITIFUL AND INSIGNIFICANT MINORITY, heh, heh, heh :D

"Director of the Kyiv-based Center for Political and Conflict Studies Mykhailo Pohrebynsky said at a press conference on Friday that about 20% of Ukrainians support the position of "ousting the Russian language from official use" in Ukraine.

"All that the opposition is currently doing is defending the position of a minority of Ukrainian citizens, while a majority calls for raising the status of the Russian language. All this hysteria, hunger strikes and so forth are the result of this, and I think this is an example of totalitarian thinking," the analyst said."

It is obvious that you are quoting the comments of Pohrebynsky from an earlier article published on this website. What you have conveniently omitted were the comments made by other analysts that were diametrically opposite to the hack from the POR in the same article. This type of propaganda is usually referred to as twisted truth.

No one disputes the fact that the only retarded orange morons who make funny noises on the streets are messily 20% minority.

The losers in the rest of the article try to explain why the orange losers are so pathetic, HA HA HA :D

After the language referendum is held, the bastardized polish language the orange morons call "Ukrainian language" will be declared minority language, HA HA HA :D

Because it is used by measly 13% of the Kiev population while 75% of the Kiev residents use the Russian language in their daily life, heh, heh, heh :D

No wonder the orange turds and their diaspora cronies are angry and whiny - they are minority no mater where they go. LOL :D

The Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU) has proposed that President Viktor Yanukovych declare an all-Ukrainian referendum on granting Russian the status of a second official language.

"We see only one way to address this issue – by amending the Constitution through a referendum, taking into account the fact that today there is a valid court ruling that recognizes the legitimacy of the previously collected 4.2 million signatures and obliges the president to hold a referendum. This is a valid act, and we would advise President Yanukovych to take these data as a basis and call for a referendum on granting official status to Russian,"

Your hatred for the Ukrainian language, Western Ukraine, Orange indicative of a truly unbalance person.

I suggest you take this hatred and turn it into something ridding Ukraine of its dictator and mafia oligarchs, that continue to rape us,,,,and keep us in poverty.
But you wouldn't understand common sense. You are totally out of touch with realtiy, in your world of hatred.

As a German Communist it can be easily understood why you would want to try and elevate the views of the CPU as being somehow important. The truth of the matter is that the Communist Party of Ukraine has barely 5% to 7% support from the general electorate. In fact, the vast majority of Ukrainian voters regard them as a riff raff relic of the Soviet past. As for the rest of your diatribe, it is not worthy of any comment.

4.2 MILLION signatures out of 46 MILLION country population is 9.1%.

This number proves you to be short on elementary math skills, or plain stupid, but then considering the fact you are an orange I repeat myself, heh, heh, heh :D.

Considering the possibility that you squck from illiterate country like the US is, no wonder, heh, heh, heh :D

As per usual your statements are ignorant and irrelevant. However, it should be noted that the POR has proven to be adept at falsifications and any number that they or their cohorts provide should be viewed with considerable skepticism (ie. subtract at least 2.1 million and it might be closer to the mark).

The puppet-master from Moscow has pushed forward their non-militaristic attack on Ukraine now that EuroCup is over and the free Western media has departed. The simplistic and moronic comments of kpxoxol further illustrate the IQ of the Bolshevism of the new USSR. Heh, Heh, Heh, :D
