OSCE/Curtis Budden

The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine has confirmed that they have seen torn Russian flag on the ground, broken furniture, goods scattered around, insulting anti-Russian inscriptions on the walls written in Ukrainian.

The OSCE representatives have recorded the comments made by Rossotrudnichestvo workers that 50 young people, mostly in masks, participated in the mayhem.

The Permanent Mission to the OSCE especially underlined that the local police refused to protect the office and did not prevent aggressive behaviour of radicals despite it was prior informed about the attack.

Let us remember, a day before the Neo-Nazi group Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists broke widows and damaged doors of the Rossotrudnichestvo office in Kiev last Sunday. Outlaws threw eggs into the building and left insulting inscriptions on the walls. These actions were accompanied by aggressive anti-Russian logos shouted by extremists.

After that the outlaws threw stones at the Alfa bank and Sberbank buildings. Around 300 people took part in the campaign.

The day before the building of Rossotrudnichestvo in Ukraine’s capital was attacked by members of C14 nationalist organization. C14 activists left insulting inscriptions on the walls and tore off the Russian flag and desecrated it.

258 million people in the world speak Russian: 146 million in the Russian Federation and 112 million abroad. But the situation is not static. Somewhere Russian language is "abolished" along with Russian culture. Somewhere, on the contrary, it is in demand. The number of Russian schools is growing in Uzbekistan, some Russian classes have been opened in Laos after a 30-year break, Tajikistan has a high request on our teachers.
