Youth organizations of Prykarpattia initiate giving regional status to Hutsul dialect

Why not, if eastern regions gave regional status to Russian

Activists of youth patriotic organizations of the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast carried out a street action under the slogan “Regional language status to the Hutsul dialect!” on 20 June.

      According to an UNIAN correspondent, the Veche Square in Ivano-Frankivsk was decorated with posters with slogans “Kolomya – the capital of Ukraine”, “Forman – our master”, and the like.

      Young people, dressed in national Hutsul clothes, dressed under live authentic music, played by local group “Petrovychi”. The local youth tried to draw attention to the problem of giving the regional status to the Russian language in several Oblasts of Ukraine. The activists are convinced that the Ukrainian nation “cannot have two state languages, because it will lose its identity”.

      The action participants sent to the Oblast Councils, which gave the regional status to the Russian language, parcels with the Constitution of Ukraine and Russian-Ukrainian dictionaries.
