Jerusalemites: Dmitriy's story

Dmitriy comes from Ukraine. He is an engineer of electromechanics. He moved to Jerusalem because of the complicated political situation in his country.

“I come from the southern part of Ukraine which is a Russian speaking region. I only speak Ukrainian because I went to an Ukrainian school. Since I was at school the members of government hasn’t changed. The same relates to the countless numbers of things regarding the winter revolution that has changed nothing. The government does not care about us. People suffer and we insist on making peace, everyone wants to make peace.

Do you know why is happening all of this? Because they care only about money. I think most people think as I do: Ukraine must be an independent and federal state, and we might speak both languages: Ukrainian and Russian.”
