The Ukrainification of eastern Russian speaking/ethnic Russian part of Ukraine has been an untold story extending to schools, media, people's names, street names, religion, job applications., dress.

The people's side of the story needs told (as opposed to either government's account). Normally we would call for a referendum/border poll---in this case though, we will only accept the result if its the one we want and so will both sides. I do wish we would stop spending zillions on sending arms when our own people are struggling and try for a diplomatic/political solution.
