Russian culture is discriminated in Ukraine

On April 8, Russian cultural societies in different countries of the world conducted a “total dictation”. This is an annual educational event in the form of a voluntary dictation for all those who want to test their knowledge of the Russian language. Outside of Russia, the majority of Russian speakers live in Ukraine. However, it was there that the “total dictation” was thwarted. In Kiev, the cultural and educational organization Rossotrudnichestvo planned to hold on this day a “total dictation” and a conference “Towards Peace and Creation through Spiritual Culture.” Both events were foiled by Ukrainian Nazis from the party “National Corps” and the Civil Corps “Azov”. They attacked the building of “Rossotrudnichestvo” in Kiev, blocked all entrances and exits, and then penetrated into the building. Activists of these Nazi organizations also attacked the Russian Drama Theater in Nikolayev, where a “total dictation” was also to take place. The theater administration had to close the entrance to the building. The organizers of the event in Odessa decided not to conduct a “total dictation” for security reasons. Under pressure from the outside, dictations were also canceled in Kharkov and Zhitomir. In no case the police ensure the safety of the event.
At the same time, official representatives of the Kiev government argue that Russian culture is not subject to discrimination in Ukraine.
