Ukrainian language divide: are we divided or united by the language?


Language is the main source of communication which helps people to consort with each other. It is a very important fact that people have a common language for understanding. When we examine the linguistic situation in Ukraine, we will be able to see strongly marked bilingualism. Every person has their own view on this situation and such thoughts are very important for the future of the national language. The main things, which will help to answer the question about division, are the understanding of the Ukrainian language in the whole of Ukraine, regional peculiarities and Russian influence during all the history of Ukraine.

First of all, the Ukrainian language is a state language of our country. It means that this language is clear to all population. The Ukrainian language is an integral part of the Ukrainian nation, because it was formed many centuries ago and was prominent during all historical period.

Secondly, the Ukrainian language is the melodious one in the world. You will never find a similar language to which have we. Though there are many regions in Ukraine with their own special peculiarities and some unusual words, but still people from whole Ukraine understand everything and do not pay much attention to this.

On other hand, this harmony is disturbed by the Russian language, which tends to be the second official language. We have today such situation because of the Russian Empire and the USSR. Our language always suffered from the oppressions of the laws which rendered the development of it impossible. These powers lead own policy in order to spread different ideas and destroy the uniqueness of every nation. That is why we can meet some echo of that time nowadays. This echo creates a vision of division of the country.

To crown it all, I would like to say that despite of such linguistics manifestation, Ukrainians are a friendly nation, which will not be divided by language principle. I think that we are a united nation, we have ancient history, traditions, culture and it does not depend on in which part of the country you live!
