The adviser to the president of Ukraine suggested to rename Russia into Moskovia, and Russian — in "Russian".

Photo: depositphotos.com the Candidate of the Verkhovna Rada from Servant of the People party, the adviser to the president of Ukraine Nikita Poturayev suggested to rename Russian that it was possible to use it officially. He suggests to rename Russian into "Russian". Moreover, on air of Ukrlife.tv TV channel Poturayev expressed the need to rename Russia into Moskovia. "As the philologist I want to tell that, certainly, "the Ukrainian Russian" or "the Russian Ukrainian" already differs from "the Russian Russian" — he explained. What do proposals of the adviser of Zelensky mean? The linguist, professor of Higher School of Economics National Research University and RGGU Maxim Krongauz comments. Maxim Krongauz is a linguist, professor of Higher School of Economics National Research University and RGGU "I do not know what he meant, and, frankly speaking, not really I want to understand it. This political statement, and, seems to me, it there is no sense to comment from the linguistic point of view. "Russian" is belonging to the country.

Of course, it was not accepted Russian-speaking Ukrainian patriots who speak Russian, but are quite loyal to the Ukrainian state, work in the Ukrainian patriotic paradigm, including Russia with an aggressor. Zelensky's team got support of many Russian-speaking citizens of Ukraine, and after elections there were such hints, probrosa that Russian can quite become Ukrainian legally. It is not necessary to connect Russian with language of an aggressor and the country aggressor.
