“To comment on this absurd request, which surprised not only Ukraine, makes no sense. The functioning of the Ukrainian language in Ukraine does not threaten in any way the international peace and security, which is the main task of the UN Security Council. This law is our interior business, which Kremlin tries to politicize,” the spokesperson stated.
