I bet they all answered in Russian. Moreover, I bet the question was also asked in Russian. Pathetic! If these people really mean what they say, they should quit speaking Russian in "daily life" and start як-ати in Ukrainian (using a metaphor from elmer-ельмер - I think this name is of tartar origin)! Nobody has taken that right away from them! Ukrainian is still the sole state language in the Ukraine.

See, the thing is, when the sovok mafia KAK-as in Rooshan - it's not a metaphor, there is real KAK-a coming out of their mouths.

The way this language bills was passed shows that the Party of Regions/Commies KAK-ad all over democracy, all over democratic norms and procedures, all of parliamentary norms and procedures.

It showed that there is no democracy in Zookraine - only a sovok mafia state, consisting of piano voting in a pretend parliament.

Як таке може бути, що Українці позволяють такий дурдом?

ЯК таке може бути, що Українці позволяють мафії їздити їм по голові, і красти безбожно?

ЯК таке може бути що це вже триває протягом 20 років?

Мафія КАК-ає в Українські хаті.

ЯК це може бути?

See - you didn't need the language bill to say what you just said.

Всі мають права как-ати і мамляти на русськой язьіком - без цього закону

Э, нет, май френд. У нас на Руси усегда було таков закону - без бумажки, ты какашка, а с бумажкой - человек (це по древне славяньски). Так шо, закончик нам нужон.

ти ніякий мій френд

ти є френд лише совкам-мафії

і закончик нужон лише для мафії - а не для гідних людей які цілком сміло без ніякого закону спілкуються так як хочуть

через цей закон Чечетов і Єфремов і та ціла мафія как-али на демократію

і виразно показали знов що вони є - нелюди

Indeed, the linguistic and even socio-linguistic impacts were great, as the Russians borrowed thousands of words, phrases and other significant linguistic features from the Mongol and the Turkic languages that were united under the Mongol Empire.[18]

"Nobody has taken that right away from them! Ukrainian is still the sole state language in the Ukraine."

Indeed, and the MAJORITY Ukraine people unlike the orange idiots and their diaspora cronies understand the fact that in REALITY the Russian language is far more popular in the INDUSTRIALIZED part of Ukraine (the one Khrushchev stole from Russia) and there is no way for the majority Russia language speakers over there to abandon their native language.

The ONLY solution for the bastardized Ukrainian language to become a sole language in Ukraine is for the E Ukraine and Crimea to rejoin Russia.

Your sovok mafia rhetoric lost its effect a long time ago.

It is based on the Nazi idea of characterizing everything Ukrainian - and Russian and Slavic - as "untermenschen."

The suggestion that Ukraine split apart and for one of the regions to join Putler was dead on arrival a long time ago.

Since the Russian language is far more 'poipular" - for a variety of reasons, including the russification of all countries in the sovok union - there is obviously no need for the language bill.

The people have obviously not abandoned their "native" language.

The bill is simply a political ploy.

"Life in Zookraine sucks - except for sovok mafiosi - but oh, lookie, lookie, here's a language bill to make your life better!"

Obviously elmer-shmelmer works as a clown while no so busy to clean public toilets for living - he makes me laugh so hard with his stupidity and innuendo, heh, heh, heh :D

Poor elmo, check how many people in E Ukraine accepted DUAL citizenship. MOST of them have both Ukraine AND Russian passports, heh, heh, heh :D

Hey, I like Elmer-shmelmer. He is a funny guy, only he hasn't yet discovered the marvel of an enema! Усё какаеть, да какаеть Heh, heh, heeeeeeh! :D LOL Gee?

elmer-елмер July 26, 2012, 12:22 a.m.    

And your point is...........?

They might have dual citizenship.

That simply says that they don't know who they are.

And, as is typical in Zookraine, that they are up to something corrupt.

It also means that there is no need for the language bill.

You live in a toilet.

I'm glad that makes you laugh.

LOL Elmo,

cant wiggle out of the fact that RISING number are taking dual citizenship because they want to bot belong to a rich an powerful nation Russia is, and in the same time to exercise their rights to keep the orange idiots under control.

Khrushchev when he stole E Ukraine and Crimea from Russia actually screwd the brain dead W Ukraine rustics big time because Ukraine will NEVER be unified and Russia will always be able to drive the oranges and the diaspora into the corner at will, heh, heh, heh :D

UPA got their DUPA abused FOREVER, HA,HA, HA :D

Виден путь далёкий в зареве лучистом,
Скачит одинокий витязь в поле чистом.
Конь бежит, земля дрожит.
Выбор на пути лежит: дорог час, да путь далёк
На распутье трёх дорог.

Жребий кинем три раза,
Помирать - значит сразу,
Испытаем в бою крепкого коня.
Щит, копьё и кальчуга
Наших три верных друга,
Силушки удалой крепкая броня!

Расскажи мне, поле, святое боями,
Кто тебя усеял мёртвыми костями,
Кто конём тебя топтал,
Копья звонкие ломал,
Кто в бою здесь кровь пролил,
Чёрных воронов вскормил?

Жребий кинем три раза,
Помирать - значит сразу,
Испытаем в бою крепкого коня.
Щит, копьё и кальчуга
Наших три верных друга,
Силушки удалой крепкая броня!
