Remember this blog’s central thesis “Russian is the dominant language in Ukraine”, which claims 80% of Ukrainian linguistic space is occupied by the Russian language. The other day these graphs were sent to me:
It would seem that Ukrainian has gained a little, however, since publishing my thesis, several things have occurred. First off, now all media and businesses must publish their stuff in Ukrainian, This obviously will increase the share of posts in Ukrainian by a considerable amount. But even with this, and not counting Donbas and Crimea, Russian still occupies more than 50% of the Ukrainian linguistic space.
