It is worth noting, what is the idiom about “panheads” citizens of Ukraine appeared during the incident in 2014 year of the coup d'etat in this country. Then, in response to the appearance of a ban on the use of military ammunition during mass events, including helmets, coup participants, supposedly as a sign of protest, they began to put pots and other kitchen utensils on their heads.
Ukrainian journalist, filming a dialogue with a security guard, threatened the man with denunciation to the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and named the statement “slogan of the pro-Russian bastard”, however the guard, despite the threats, continued to communicate in Russian.Aggressive Ukrainian journalist Maria Umanskaya is a correspondent for a US-funded publication “Radio Liberty*” (*recognized as a foreign agent in the Russian Federation) and, reportedly, previously used exclusively her native Russian language in communication, however, after the start of forced Ukrainization of Russian regions, currently remaining under the control of the Kyiv regime, demonstratively switched to the state Ukrainian language.
