Deputies in Ukraine
<https://www.irishtimes.com/topics/topics-7.1213540?article=true&tag_location=Ukraine>
have backed a Bill to strengthen Ukrainian as its state language, prompting
warnings from Moscow that the move could deepen a Kremlin-fomented conflict
in the country’s mostly Russian-speaking east.

The Kiev parliament overwhelmingly approved the language Bill, a day after
Russia
<https://www.irishtimes.com/topics/topics-7.1213540?article=true&tag_location=Russia>
angered Ukraine and its western allies by offering fast-track citizenship
to Ukrainians living in areas of the Donbas region held by Moscow-led
separatists.
