Kiev has compiled a list of the indigenous peoples of Ukraine, there are no Russians in it

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has submitted to the Verkhovna Rada a bill "On the indigenous peoples of Ukraine." There are no Russians in the text of the document, published on the parliament's website and marked for urgent consideration.

The bill defines the indigenous people as an autochthonous ethnic community that is a native speaker of an original language, which has its own cultural, social or representative bodies and recognizes itself as the people of Ukraine, constitutes an ethnic minority in its population and does not have a state education outside the country. The list includes Crimean Tatars, Karaites and Krymchaks, whom the Ukrainian authorities did not notice for the first quarter of a century of independence, now they are "suddenly" remembered.

The document gives these peoples the right to self-determination, political status within the framework of Ukrainian legislation, large economic, cultural, educational and linguistic rights, the ability to create their own media, and their representative bodies - to receive funding from the budget of Ukraine. In addition, they are afforded protection against acts of deprivation of ethnicity, forced integration or assimilation. Protection against racial, religious or ethnic hatred is also provided.

Indigenous peoples are given the right to choose their symbols. Denial of ethnicity or identity is prohibited. Representative bodies of indigenous peoples are allowed access to financial, technical, charitable and humanitarian aid from foreign states, international organizations, legal entities and individuals in accordance with the legislation of Ukraine.

Thus, Zelensky made it clear exactly how, in his “European” view, the Russians and the Russian language in Ukraine should be protected. There is no doubt that this document was specially prepared for the future conference "Crimean Platform", which is scheduled to be held in Kiev on the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence.

    It is time for the Russian Federation to respond to the ukropetekami in the same way and to legislate benefits and the right to occupy managerial posts in government organizations exclusively for the indigenous population of the Russian Federation.

      What can I say, buddy, we will never become millionaires, but we have become men long ago. This is our land and everyone who covets it will choke on our bayonets. Bandera do not consider us theirs and do the right thing, but ALL of their Ukraine is on the map of 1654, within the borders of which they crawled into Russia from the Polish barn. Glory to Russia ! Let's live brother!

        Ukraine on the map of 1648 (Guillaume de Beauplan's map) occupies approximately the same territory as today. By the way, the same map shows "Moskovia" the size of the Moscow region. There is no RI, no USSR, no RSFSR, no RF.

          Muscovy Russia was called only by Poland, regularly raking from Russia, from which you fled to Russia, without which only Polish pigs could graze ... And ALL your Ukraine, this is really the Kiev region and its surroundings, well, a little more ... Even Dnepropetrovsk, it is Russian Yekaterinoslav ... Kirov, this is the Russian Elizavetgrad ... And your Ukraine existed only in the fantasies of the lackey-Grushevsky, who at first cried to the Germans, and then to Stalin, and died in the communist sanatorium of Kislovodsk ... He drew maps of Ukraine almost before Kursk, and had no real power even in Lvov, which was ruled by the Germans!

            Peregrine Falcon, do not waste your strength; I do not like boors, and even more so brazenly denying history. Perhaps someone here is taking you seriously, but it's not me. Your further fabrications will remain without my answer. No.

    Hungarians not included in this list?
    If Russians and Hungarians (Poles, Romanians) are not the indigenous peoples of Ukraine, then they have every right to leave for those states in which they are indigenous.
    Good document.

    Putin has always argued that Russians and Ukrainians are one people. And when Zelensky officially (!) Approved this position, he turned out to be "bad."
    Readers should have cognitive dissonance.

    And in what you are boiling ??? It clearly states that a people who does not have state education in the world can be considered indigenous. The Belarusians, Armenians, Koreans, Jews, etc. (but for some reason do not do this) who have been living in Ukraine for centuries can also take offense ...

    Following the example of one post-Soviet republic, I know for sure: if they start talking about the language at the very top, culture, self-determination of nations, ancestral lands, titular nationality ...
    ... then they will start stealing soon... And steal by the billions.

      And I know one post-Soviet country where billions are stolen without any problems on nationality. Everyone steals! Full equality and brotherhood in this matter ...
