Azarov has accused Tymoshenko and Yushchenko in the oppression of the Russian language

Adoption of the new language law is a response to oppression of Russian previous government of Ukraine , zayavilpremer Minister Mykola Azarov said in an interview with Vladimir Posner Posner in his program in the Russian First Channel.
“First of all, the adoption of this law – a reaction to the fact that the power that ruled Ukraine for the previous 5 years, engaged in ousting the Russian language in all spheres of communication. If our predecessors did not carry out such a policy, this issue would not be so acute, “- Azarov said.
He recalled that the government of Yulia Tymoshenko “has decided to ban the children and teachers at recess to speak in Russian,” but now that decision reversed.
As said Azarov , the previous head of the NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine in Moscow demanded a translator from Russian into Ukrainian.
In his opinion, it is an absurd situation, when Ukraine half the population considers Russian their native language.
According to Azarov, that Taras Shevchenko in the home spoke in Russian, writing diaries, letters and prose in Russian.
The Prime Minister said he had not discussed the issue of giving the Russian language official status in Ukraine.
