Is this not the same shit that has caused the Russian clean up in the eastern Ukraine, the locals of that area were been forced to speak and learn Ukraine, those who spoke their native tongue Russian in shops were fined, along with the Neo Nazis the Azov killing and attacking the local population since 2014, the question is will we end up in that situation, fined for not speaking maori and in a civil war.
