(abstract, magazine “SAKAVIK”, June 2014, issue 6, pp. 7-24)
Russian language is used as a motive and a tool of aggression in Ukraine along with military means. Given the considerable spread of daily use of the Russian language in Ukraine and Belarus, as well as external linguistic, cultural, economic and military pressure of Russia, how the construction of nation-states in these conditions is being seen?
This paper discusses the definition of Russian language versus word “russian=русский (by nationality)”, slavyanskasts (belonging to Slavs) of Russian ethnic group, the difference between the East Slavic and Eurasian civilizations, as well as prospects for the development of the Belarusian and Ukrainian nations under Russian pressure.
