The authorities of Kyiv proved their complete isolation from real problems of Ukrainians by  their initiative on mandatory use of the state language. Such opinion was expressed by Oleksandr Klymenko, the leader of the “Uspishna Kraina” party.

In particular, the politician, cites the data that is related to real problem for Ukrainians. It comes about the dynamics of price growth during the last year. According to fresh data of the State Statistics Committee on change in the price index in Ukraine, since March 2016, the price of bread in Ukraine has increased by 12,6%, milk – by  25,9%, meat – by 11,8%. At the same time, the price of cheese, butter, clothes and shoes, communication, fuel, passenger transport, utilities have also significantly increased.

The leader of the “Uspishna Kraina” believes that authorities will care more about citizens of they change not the language, but prices.

“… Current course of events – it is sublimation and mockery of Kyiv residents. After all, head of the family will not bring more bread, sausage and milk. Unfortunately,parents-pensioners will not become fed enough by Ukrainian speaking”, – Klymenko summed up.

Let us recall, on April 20, MPs of the Kyiv City Council adopted the draft on widespread use of Ukrainian language in all fields of the life in Kyiv as a basis.

The decision of the City Council provides mandatory use of  Ukrainian language by staff in shops, utility institutions, public catering, etc. It is also offered to translate all the signs and menu of restaurants in Kyiv into the state language. The draft decision was introduced to the city council by Yuri Sirotyuk, the chairman of the “Svoboda” fraction.
