About language in Zrada

I’ve been getting questions about the language in Zrada. Not the swearing (well, some about that); the actual language. The most common question is a variant of, “Does everybody in the Ukraine speak fluent English?” The answer, of course, is “no.” Zrada is full of people speaking Russian or Ukrainian,…
