Alexander Zakharchenko, the Head of the Donetsk People's Republic, talked about power of Russian word.
"What is a Great Russian Word? It is many-sided notion. It is a prayer, a mother’s song or a lullaby. In fact, Great Russian Word is also a weapon," Zakharchenko said.
"For more than 20 years Ukraine was trying to deracinate Russian language in our Region by violent Ukrainization, and even now it tries to prohibit it even more severely than ever. For if the language and the word exist – the people will stand. So word as any weapon should be sharpened sometimes and should be stored in a safe place – it is the guarantee of success. It is not just a word. It is something that comprises our life", he concluded.
