| Stepan YatskoA cashier at a store in Odessa was fined for speaking to a customer in Russian who did not understand Ukrainian.
The client asked what the Ukrainian phrase “life-giving cream” meant. He asked the saleswoman to switch to Russian. When she responded to the request of the buyer, a passerby approached her and caused a scandal, write Ukrainian media.
The language mediator imposed a fine of 3,400 UAH (about 7,000 rubles) on the cashier. In an explanatory note, she noted that a passerby hinted at her mental retardation, then pulled out her phone and started filming. Passers-by defended the saleswoman, but she still couldn’t avoid a fine.
