 You can speak Russian in Cafeteria and Restroom but not in Rada Session Hall," Tiahnybok

Svoboda is still fighting for Ukrainization of parliamentary speeches.

Leader of Svoboda Oleh Tiahnybok negatively commented on the statement of Rada Speaker Rybak who deems it acceptable to talk in Russian.

Censor.NET cites Tiahnybok as saying "In Ukraine there should be only one official language - Ukrainian. In state bodies you need to speak in the official language. Last time I appealed to the majority deputies: please, in the hallways, in cafeteria, in restrooms, at a meeting with voters you can speak even Chinese. But in courts, prosecutor's offices, police, the Verkhovna Rada, in the session room - be so kind as to speak Ukrainian," said Tiahnybok.

Asked about whether there will be Svoboda will continue obstructing speeches in Russian, Tiahnybok answered: "Always."
