Just asking. Talking to some Ukrainians and many of them do not speak Ukrainian as their native language as opposed to Russian.
I went looking for Russian language learning tools and found it scarce in my city but apparently there was a whole Ukrainian book store in town, so I am gunning for something that is most accessible to me. Hence, learning Ukrainian over Russian.
Russian is the spoken language (officially) but in the west of Ukraine many will speak Ukrainian as the first language, I think they all know Ukrainian though, my wife certainly does and she only moved to Ukraine at the age of 12.
