Abuse. I see two options: not creating an issue at all or creating an 
issue and translating it as usual. There is no midpoint. The sugested 
midpoint is another support of the idea that everybody must know English 
to work normally in WMF projects. People are forced to know English to 
learn about tech news in the case. I won't stand it and just my being 
offline for long prevented me to translate the issue in time. I'll make 
sure that even if Vira won't translate issues there will be Ukrainian 
translation available in further. There are better and worse ways to 
defy WMF. This way is not mine.
