The National Security and Defense Council advised using Ukrainian words, which are trouble-makers, to "Russian-speaking jaw" to identify the occupiers.
This was reported by the press service of the NSDC (National Security and Defense Council) on Twitter.
"Words that will quickly identify a non-native Ukrainian speaker based on pronunciation: palianytsia, molodytsia, svitlytsia, nisenitnytsia, veselka, filizhanka, veshatysia, duhmianyi, neperelyvky, kmitlyvyi, putsvirinok, obtsenky, terevenyty, telepen and many others. Complete the dictionary, let us help UAF (Armed Forces of Ukraine) to destroy the enemy! " -says the message.
"One of the easiest ways to identify RSG (reconnaissance and sabotage group) is to make a suspicious person repeat Ukrainian words, which will force his 'Russian-speaking jaw' "to reveal" itself." - says National Security and Defense Council.
The "Russian-speaking jaw" meme appeared in 2014 after a Russian woman told reporters in Crimea, occupied by Russia, that Russian-speaking people had "special jaws." The woman also stated that she could not speak Ukrainian because of this, although she "understands everything."
"We have, even ... it's here ... jaws are different here ... Here we are ... I can't even speak Ukrainian, I have these bones fixed differently, probably," the woman said, pointing to her face.
According to polls, 59% of citizens of Ukraine consider Russian a foreign language. The vast majority of Ukrainians believe knowing English is a necessity (84.9%), recognize that it provides career benefits (86.9%) and that it should be mandatory in Ukrainian schools (up to intermediate level).
22.2% of Ukrainians said that German is necessary, French - 13.7%, Spanish - 13.6%, Polish - 11.1%, Russian - 9.6%, Chinese - 6.5%, Portuguese - 6, 3%, Arabic - 2.4%, and others languages - 1.4%.
The theme of the Russian language and the "protection" of the Russian-speaking population is often raised in propaganda on Russian TV and the media. Russian politicians also constantly mention this, including President Putin, to justify military aggression in Ukraine.
