The rock musician Oleg Skripka stated that it is necessary to gather people who live in Ukraine and are unable to learn the Ukrainian language and put them in a ghetto. This was said on Thursday, April 20th, by the frontman of the “Vopli Vidoplyasova” group during a meeting with young journalists, reports “Ukrainian Pravda”.

“People who are no able to learn the Ukrainian have a low IQ, such people have the diagnosis of ‘moron’. It is necessary to isolate them because they are socially dangerous, it is necessary to create a ghetto for them,” said Skripka. According to him, those not capable of mastering the Ukrainian language will be given help. “By a volunteer initiative, we will sing to them ‘Vladimir Prison‘,” added the musician.

Also the rocker noted that he would like the Ukrainian language to become the dominant one in society. “I would like to live in a completely Ukranian-speaking cultural environment. I will realise it around me: I communicate with the best Ukrainians, I hire Ukranian-speaking professionals in my staff, emphasized Skripka. He noted that the one who doesn’t possess the Ukrainian language “has the full right to look for work in other countries”.

Oleg Skripka is a Ukrainian rock musician and public figure – the frontman of the Vopli Vidoplyasova group. In 2005 he was given the rank of a honored artist of Ukraine. He regularly made statements about the exclusiveness of Ukrainian in the country.
