I was born and raised in the south of Ukraine in a Russian-speaking family, which was the majority in this region. But I did not have the opportunity to study in my native language. There were no hours of the Russian language at school, and Russian literature was studied as part of the subject "Foreign Literature".

I was small and stupid and once in a Ukrainian literature lesson I said that I like Taras Shevchenko's Russian stories because they are written in Russian. For such sincerity, until the end of school, she had a stable three in Ukrainian.

I graduated from school in 1998, that is, my studies fell on the 90s.

My daughter also did not have the opportunity to study in Russian: by the time she entered school, there was only one Russian school left in the city, and that one was overcrowded. At the end of her first grade, when we moved to Sevastopol, she wrote the Russian "и" like this: "i"

Protests in Sevastopol in 2014 began with a law banning the Russian language.

And on December 30, 2016, the Ban on Russian books came into force in Ukraine.

Further, it became more and more interesting, and already in the light of the special operation on June 19, 2022, the Verkhovna Rada adopts new laws.

The Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine withdrew books by Russian authors from the school curriculum.

This object is a Rubik's cube, on the sides of which QR codes are printed on the printer, leading to 6 seized works. These codes cannot be read, only by touch. But man does not possess such a scanner. And after several rotation iterations, the codes will no longer be recoverable. How impossible it will be to restore the lost gaps in culture, education and mutual understanding.

Nikolai Gogol "Overcoat"

Vasily Bykov "Alpine ballad"

"Ilya Muromets and the Nightingale the Robber"

Anatoly Kuznetsov "Babi Yar"
