As reports the edition «observer», the customers of a supermarket in Kharkiv protested the fact that sellers began to talk to them in Ukrainian. Meanwhile, according to store employees, the order to speak with buyers in the Ukrainian language came to him from «above».
«Recently we received from Kiev note: all phrases that tell the cashiers, «type the card is? you need a bag?» – say in the Ukrainian language. The staff, of course, unusual, but nowhere to go. I was surprised that the innovation has caused a wave of indignation among consumers», — said the employee of the store Tatiana. The reaction of the buyers was very rough: the day the sellers heard demands to «go to their Bandera» and calls to give the «complaints book».
However, as stressed by the «observer», the Ukrainian authorities want to expand the scope of use of the Ukrainian language and make it mandatory, providing penalties for violation of the law.
