The court refused to reinstate Farion, who offended Russian speakers |  In the world |  Policy

The Galitsky District Court of Lviv rejected the claim of ex-Verkhovna Rada deputy Irina Farion to reinstate her as a professor at the Lviv Polytechnic National University.

The reason for the dismissal was a statement by Farion, known for her nationalist views, made in early January. Then the politician said that Russian-speaking military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) were negatively influencing the course of the conflict with Russia. The Lvov court regarded the statement of the former Rada deputy as an “immoral act.”

“Based on the results of the consideration of this case, the court had no doubt that the plaintiff’s behavior, namely her statements, can be characterized as an immoral offense,” the court’s decision dated February 7 is quoted as saying in the Telegram channel of the Ukrainian publication

During the consideration of the case, the judge ruled that the order of the rector of the Lviv Polytechnic University to dismiss Farion complies with current legislation. The deputy herself has not yet commented on the court decision, but she still has the opportunity to file an appeal, clarifies.

On January 25, Farion made a call to stop “understanding Russian-speaking soldiers” of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. According to her, Ukrainians who speak Russian are themselves to blame for the fact that they do not use the “Ukrainian language,” which is allegedly due to their laziness and complexes.

A few days later, on January 29, the ex-deputy said that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are not an army, but a “rabble,” and the Ukrainian soldiers themselves are “moscow bulls” because they prefer to speak Russian among themselves. Noticing that the population of Lvov also speaks Russian, Farion said that the city has turned into a “city of saboteurs.”

On January 9, official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, commenting on the information that in Ukraine the number of denunciations due to violation of the state language has increased by about a third, jokingly advised the authorities in Kiev to pay attention to the active use of Russian obscenities in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
