A bit from history
In the 6th century, the tribe of Slavs immigrated from the territory of ancient Poland and settled down in the Balkan region. Till the 10th century, there were three groups of Slavic languages: South Slavic, West Slavic, and East Slavic. Ukrainian, Russian, and Belarusian started to develop from the East Slavic language, and till the 12th-13th centuries, there were no specific differences between these three languages.
There are many opinions why these three languages were separated from each other. Some people think that it occurred naturally, in the course of time, and this process was not influenced by any external forces. Others believe that the ancient East Slavic language never existed, and Ukrainian, Russian, and Belarusian developed independently starting with the 6th-9th century.
But in the 17th century, the country got under the influence of the Russian language. The upper class acquired Russian or Polish, and the school system switched to Russian or Polish till the 19th century.
Ukraine gained its independence only in 1991, and Ukrainian became an official state language. This contributed to the introduction of Ukrainian into the school system, administration, and mass media.
