Not a single Russian school to be preserved in Mariupol

In Mariupol, won by Ukrainian troops from the DPR in the summer of 2014, the last two Russian-language schools will be switched to Ukrainian since September, said the head of the Mariupol City Council's Education Department, Svetlana Dobrovolskaya.

According to her, the draft decision "On designation of the schools №10 and №34 as Ukrainian-language ones" has already been registered in the Verkhovna Rada.
"They want to close all the Russian schools in the Russian-speaking Mariupol. But, at that, you must understand that "there are rough deals on the Russian language in Ukraine"... By the way, as a historian of Donbass, I can say that the policy of closing all the Russian schools was taken there twice – in the 1920s by the Bolsheviks. And then in the 1940s by the Nazis. But, if the Bolsheviks intended to make all the schools purely Ukrainian, the Nazis promised that all the Donbass schools would be Ukrainian and German. Well, history repeats itself," comments political scientist Vladimir Kornilov.
