Benyuk suggests a way to solve the problem of teachers who do not speak Ukrainian as a matter of principle
Bohdan Benyuk, director of the Podil Theater in Kyiv and an acting teacher, said that university professors who continue to speak Russian should be fired. According to him, representatives of Ukrainian culture should create a Ukrainian background and speak the state language.
The famous actor said this in an exclusive interview with OBOZ.UA. As a university employee, he believes that it is necessary to develop appropriate conditions for communication in educational institutions to be in Ukrainian.
"I work at the university, I have a teaching job, and I work with the students of the theater institute, creating appropriate conditions because they are representatives of Ukrainian culture, which means that we need to create a Ukrainian background, Ukrainian communication. Everyone needs to do this. There are people who are against this Ukrainian background, and they should be fired from their jobs and, if possible, create a Ukrainian environment," Benyuk said.
As a reminder, the theater and film star supported linguist Iryna Farion, who found herself at the epicenter of the scandal. Benyuk believes that the former lecturer at Lviv Polytechnic was right about the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine. The actor himself considers them "invaders" and does not support speaking Russian even at the front.
