The russian federation uses the russian language as an instrument in the war against Ukraine. This was stated by the State Language Protection Commissioner Taras Kremin on Channel 24.
"russia's use of the russian language as a tool in the war against Ukrainians is obvious. And this tool is not hidden but open. "If we look at the programmatic articles of the russian authorities about the so-called 'denazification', we see that in fact they are committing genocide against the Ukrainian people by defending the 'Russian-speakers', " Taras Kremin said.
The Commissioner noted that today the Secretariat of the Commissioner, as a language institution, collects materials related to linguocide - discrimination of citizens of Ukraine on the basis of language.
“This goes about education and teaching staff, as well as other areas, such as culture. We collect all the facts and attach them to the staff [Ukraine's case against Russia] which is being formed against Russia for international courts. I think such facts will be used effectively. To collect information on our website, we have created a convenient form of the message "Stop Linguocide!" and have already begun to receive the first messages. We care the enemy to be punished for his crimes", Taras Kremin said.
We remind you that you can report the facts of linguocide:
