The Russian Language in Ukraine

The Russian Language in Ukraine

Complicit in Genocide, or Victim of State-Building?

(p.56) Chapter 2 The Russian Language in Ukraine
The Russian Language Outside the Nation

Bill Bowring

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter tracks the fate of the Russian language in Ukraine on the example of the implementation of the Council of Europe’s 1992 European Charter for Regional and Minority languages. Both Ukrainian and Russian have been at the centre of heated political debates since Ukrainian independence. There have been deep divisions between the European Charter and its application in the country, something that evidences that the Charter might not be a solution to the vexed question of the Russian language in Ukraine.

Keywords:   law, European Charter, Russian, minority language, Ukraine, language policy
