Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"They made a big mistake when they stood on Maidan and said they wanted to ban the Russian language ... We don't want to be second-class citizens," said Marchenko's brother Vitaly, a civilian sailor.
"I am not against a united Ukraine ... Yes, our president was not great. Yes, there was corruption and theft, but we don't want to live under these conditions. We are just sick of these speeches by fascists and neo-fascists."  

Who ever advised "new parliament" to ban Russian language made a huge favor to Russians.No one in the world can stand to defend this stupidity.Plus they showed the world that they are fascists and nationalists (term hated worldwide especially from the time of Balkan wars when  Serbian nationalists were marked as guilty for those bloody wars and are still in Hague).
Also if there wasn't Sashenka the fascist (and his videos biting prosecutor and coming with a rifle and knife at the city council session etc.) Russians would need to invent him. Huge favor to Russians.
