Ukrainian officials continue to compete in the absurd. At this time, stir the Mayor of the small town of Novograd-Volynskiy, Vladimir Zagrevy. Provincial mayor appealed to the President of Petro Poroshenko with an unusual request. He made the initiative to rename the Ukraine " to " Ukraine-Rus ".
The official said that "Russia" is the true name of Ukraine, which was stolen from people, in conjunction with its glorious history. Back to basics will be the best manifestation of respect for million of Ukrainian patriots who gave their lives for their own people, believes Zagrevy. According to his statement, this will begin the process of building a New Ukraine-Rus'.
Clearly, the Mayor of Novograd-Volyn been reading modern Ukrainian history textbooks. In them the term "Ukraine-Rus" is proposed to use instead of the conventional " Kievan Rus ". The Ukrainian nationalist historiography promote his already not 1st year. Before independence it was actively used leader Viktor Yushchenko. On his initiative was established even the Day of baptism of Kyivan Rus-Ukraine ". By the way, in the decree of Peter Poroshenko about honoring the memory of Prince Vladimir also been said that this ruler as if he " created the medieval state of Rus-Ukraine ".
It came to the point that people's deputies of the Verkhovna Rada has introduced to Parliament a draft law on the prohibition to call Russian Federation Russia. Because people believe that " Rus "and derived from it "Russia" must become the recognized names of modern Ukraine.
traditional historians such interpretation is, to put it mildly. Attempts to explain that Ukraine is much more the later formation than the Kievan Rus, And about the Ukrainian people can only speak from the XVII century, is perceived in bayonets. Here the Mayor of Novograd-Volyn made an initiative to legalize the name "Ukraine-Rus" and to make corresponding amendments to the Constitution. His proposal He wishes to submit for consideration to the Verkhovna Rada and the government of Ukraine. Perhaps with a new name will be easier to solve all the problems. And you can still, as in the song, to annul Mondays. That's when Ukrainian officials just becomes easier to live.
