I have an american friend here in Vienna who goes to the Ukraine every other weekend to see his gf. He is studying ukrainian now and speaks a little bit. His gf lives in Lyviv but this past weekend he spent a day in kiev. He said in kiev he tried to speak in Ukrainian to people and not one single person answered him in Ukrainian. All people spoke Russian and thats now after everythings already happened. I actually support ukrainians in their struggle for independence but when people just start uttering nonsense it gets annoying.
