Ukrainian Minister: Airports of Ukraine Must Remove Russian Language

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


It is necessary for the airports of Ukraine to get rid of the Russian language and Communist names. This was reported by local media, citing the Minister of Infrastructure Vladimir Omelian.

“The information provided in the airports of Ukraine on electronic boards, signs, visual or sounded through the speakers, must be in Ukrainian and English. There should not be the Russian language. It is not only a question about the use of the state language, it is a question of self-esteem first of all. In addition, employees of the airports when dealing with passengers need to use the Ukrainian or English languages,” he said.

According to the official, according to the law on decommunization, the names of enterprises and institutions that have the imprint of Sovietization will also have to change.
