Are Ukrainian and Russian mutually understandable, like Danish and Swedish?
Or are they mutually unintelligible, like French and Italian?
ukranian is just Russian for niggers.
its basicly finnish for sweds.
Niggers developed they own slang just for lulz, since they think they are real nation and stuff.
Ukraine should switch to a latin alphabet to seal the difference

I've been eating lunch at my parents place this past week and they usually have Perviy Baltiyskiy on. Whenever some news from Ukraine would come up (flu epidemic, salmonela eggs, broken ceasefire) and someone would speak Ukrainian there would be a russian voice over.
So the russians are trying to make people think ukrainians speak a different language? What?
I know it's mutually intelligible up to a point, I have been multiple times to both Russian and Ukraine. Whenever someone in Kiev would start speaking fast I could barely understand every other word, so there are differences.
I understand 60-70% of Ukrainian speech.
They preserved more Russian words then there is in our modern city speech. I'm talking about main Ukrainian language or dialect or whatever you like to call it, not bastardised Polish from the west.
Bulgarophone. Not everything here belongs to Russia.
Ruthenian language (used in Grand Duchy of Lithuania) is nearly the same that old-Russian. Russian evolved with Church Slavonic and Germanic/Romance influence, because of Orthodox church and westernisation. Ukranian and Belorussian languages changed more slowly, because they were mostly used by villagers. They still have Slavic names for months, not Roman, for example.Townpeople and nobles speaked Polish. Today village dialects of Russian are very close to Ukrainian, only lack some Polish loanwords to be the same.
STALIN DINDU NUFFIN WRONG. HE WAS A GUD BOYY
Finnish isn't even from the same root as Swedish.
They are quite similar, but there are also some important differences, let's take even basic expressions like "thank you":
-ukr. "dyakuyu" (it's much closer to Polish "dziękuję" than to Russian)
another example - "godbye"
ukr. "do pobachennya" (closer to Polish "do zobaczenia")
Or check this - when Poles address someone politely they say "pan" (sir, lord), Russians use verbs in second person plural ("vy"/you plural), but Ukrainians can use both ways - "pan" and "vy"
Some grammar endings are more similar in Polish and Russian, like infinitive ending ć/t', while in Ukrainian it's "ty" (I think that it comes from Old-Church Slavonic, but I'm not sure).
Russian and Ukrainian are very close, but in many cases Ukrainian is closer to Polish and sometimes it has features/expressions unknown in both Russian and Polish.
>and sometimes it has features/expressions unknown in both Russian and Polish.
all that chauvinist passive-aggressive "superiority" bullshit from poles and russians have always amused me
can you guys accept the reality in which some languages just emerged from mutual source and they are not just the branch or changed version of your shitty languages?
you seem to be really buttblasted, Mykola, I didn't write that Ukrainian "comes" from Russian or Polish (although it's a fact that it was heavily influenced by these two languages)
>sometimes it has features/expressions unknown in both Russian and Polish.
yep you implying that sometimes aka occasionally, rather than all of the time it has something original.
sigh, shove your polish pride in your butt where it came from, Marek
>although it's a fact that it was heavily influenced by these two languages
and you probably have PhD in etymology?
not a very reliable source tbqh. Here's a better one
don't even bother in discussions with polacks
they are just as chauvinist and nationalist with "muh great past" as russians. Different sides of same shitty coin and a lot of nations needed to deal with both of them for centuries
>Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Kaliningrad, Belarus Ukraine, Poland, bit of Romania
Literally the only non-russian word in your post is "šugava". Good job.

rusky in most slavic lang = russian
rosprava only in slovak lang = talking
