There is no Russian nation and no Russian language. This was stated by the Deputy of the Latvian Seimas Alexander Kirshteins.
“There is no such Russian nation. The Russian language itself emerged as a dialect when the Mongol-Tatars tried to speak Ukrainian!” he wrote on his twitter account.
Earlier, in a temple in Ukraine, it was forbidden to pray in Russian. Also since January, the Ukrainian language has been strengthened in Ukraine. Bans and restrictions began to be introduced against the Russian.
