Vladimir Zelenski becomes Volodymyr Zelenski on Facebook
It happened a few hours later after parliament passed the law on the exclusivity of the Ukrainian language. Zelenski has already called the hostage of political rhetoric and noted that it was adopted without proper discussion.
The presidential president of Ukraine, Vladimir Zelenski, changed his name to his Facebook page, recording it in Ukrainian – Volodymyr Zelenski. Previously, the name of the winner of the presidential election was written in Russian.
"We received offers from our subscribers to change the name and respond to them. Moreover, this was appropriate given its new presidential status, "Green's press secretary Irina Pobedonosseva said in a conversation with public television.
Earlier on Thursday, April 25, the Verkhovna Rada approved the law that established exclusive rights for Ukrainian language compared to other languages in the republic. It obliges the leadership of the country, parliamentarians, judges and prosecutors, employees of the National Bank of Ukraine, contract staff, teachers and doctors to use only Ukrainian language in the workplace. The law also requires all citizens of Ukraine to know the national language.
