I don’t know if any of this is related, but note a July 14 decision, reported at https://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-polytics/3280623-constitutional-court-declares-language-law-constitutional-source.html :
The Constitutional Court of Ukraine has recognized the Law of Ukraine “On Ensuring the Functioning of the Ukrainian Language as the State Language” as constitutional.
According to the new rules, customer service must be provided in the state language. In particular, this applies to enterprises, institutions and organizations of all forms of ownership; individual entrepreneurs; business entities providing services to consumers (including online stores).
This requirement applies not only to trade, but also to the educational sector, as well as the provision of health, social, legal, transport and other services.
Information in price tags, instructions, technical specifications, markings, tickets, menus, etc. must be provided in the Ukrainian language.
And from the Ukrainian constitution, translated at https://www.refworld.org/pdfid/44a280124.pdf :
The state language of Ukraine is the Ukrainian language.
The State ensures the comprehensive development and functioning of the
Ukrainian language in all spheres of social life throughout the entire territory of Ukraine.
In Ukraine, the free development, use and protection of Russian, and other languages of national minorities of Ukraine, is guaranteed.
The State promotes the learning of languages of international communication.
The use of languages in Ukraine is guaranteed by the Constitution of Ukraine and is determined by law.
