"If a dozen men, working eight hours a day, had to dig a hole ten-and-a-half miles deep—how long would it be, including Sundays, before they put down their spades?"

The King's eyes shone with a cunning sparkle. He gazed at the Cat with a look of triumph. But the Cat had its answer ready.

"Two seconds," it said quickly, with a little flick of its tail.

"Two seconds! Are you mad? The answer's in years!" The King rubbed his hands together with glee at the thought of the Cat's mistake.

"I repeat," said the Cat. "It would take them two seconds. To dig such a hole would be utterly foolish. 'Ten miles deep?' they would say. 'Why, what on earth for?'"

@Putnik In order to answer in Russian one has to speak the language. There are people who understand but don't speak the language. They are not in major cities or regional centers but they do exist.

To be quite honest with you a few weeks would be enough to learn a few phrases that you can say. Problem will be comprehension. The Russian and Ukrainian languages are similar in a lot of respects and dissimilar in quite a bit of others on top of this at least 3 distinct dialects of Ukrainian in use as well as Surzhyk, which is a blend of both languages. So my suggestion is still use Russian.

You want to try to understand what is being told to you? Or you want to be able to ask for something? Few weeks isn't enough for either.
