The word “makronić” appears more and more frequently in the Ukrainian public space. This behavior is intended to relate to a situation where you create the impression that you are experiencing something strongly, and you are not really doing anything to solve the problem.
The new word was noticed by, among others, political scientist Michał Marek from the Jagiellonian University, author of the monograph “Operation Ukraine”.
“An example of the development of the Ukrainian language – the word ‘macronytes’ (free translation ‘makronić’)” – he indicated on Twitter.
“Definition:” Refers to a situation in which we create the impression that we are experiencing something strongly (we try to show it clearly), but basically do nothing to solve the problem, “he wrote.
The term “makronić” is a reference to the attitude of French President Emmanuel Macron. Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the host of the Elysée Palace has talked with Vladimir Putin several times and was to convince him to end the hostilities, but to no great effect.
