Ukrainian politicians fight again – level 1

26-03-2013 06:00

Politicians in the Ukraine were fighting again. It was the first meeting in the parliament in March. One group of politicians didn’t like a speech made by the other group. And they started to fight.

The fight started because one politician gave a speech in Russian. Millions of people in the Ukraine see Russian as their mother tongue. But some people don’t like it when it is used in the parliament. They want to hear only Ukrainian in the parliament. There were a lot of fights between politicians over this problem.

Interesting words: speech (spoken words), mother tongue (language which you learn from your mother), Ukrainian (language in Ukraine).
