This bit of news, I think, illustrates Russian-Ukrainian relations on a fundamental level: " Children attacked in Germany for speaking Ukrainian: 10-year-old boy thrown off bridge The results of the police investigation indicate that several Ukrainian children were standing near a bridge when an unknown man began to complain that the children spoke Ukrainian. He ordered them to speak Russian and said that Ukraine had started the war. What language the man spoke is not specified. The prosecutor's office indicates that the man allegedly pulled a girl by the hair, grabbed a 10-year-old boy, and threw him over the railing into the canal. ... The prosecutor general considers the attack politically motivated, the newspaper Die Welt writes. It also notes that the attacker spoke Russian."
