I would like even the most ardent nationalists to remember that Ukrainian culture may be Russian-speaking, the leader of the Tanok na Maidani Kongo group Oleg Fahot Mykhailyuta said in the comment to the GORDON .
"Ukrainian culture is also Russian-language culture, and it can be a weapon, too. Shevchenko has some works in Russian, but even the most inveterate nationalists do not consider him to be a traitor of the Ukrainian nation. I would like them to remember it when they start barking at people who speak Russian," he said.
Mykhailyuta considers that the government do not pay proper attention to culture now.
"Each citizen’s culture must be a weapon. I do not know what the president meant by "Ukrainian culture", but I mean the level of culture of every person with a Ukrainian passport. Indeed, it can be a very powerful weapon. I am disappointed at how the Ministry of Culture behaves towards the country now. The government only talk about culture now, but they do not protect it," Fahot stated.
