This argument is totally irrelevant. There is no place for politics in 
answering the question if a language is used and if so in which way. 
What is relevant is that there are people still writing in Cyrillic. 
This has been expressed before. On previous occasions we have expressed 
quite strongly that political arguments have no place in deciding if a 
language in one of its manifestations is used or not. This is the point 
of view of the language committee.
