The law “On education” protects Ukrainian language – paruby

The law “On education” protects Ukrainian language and does not infringe the languages of national minorities and indigenous peoples. This was stated by the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Andrew Parubiy.

“We managed to find a compromise definition in the regulations, which still caused a debate as MPs, and in society… It was a very good example of when the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has demonstrated that it can make the agreed compromise solution and I am convinced that the decision which we have found the best, most correct,” – said Parubiy during the conciliation Council of leaders of factions, committees and groups of the Verkhovna Rada on September 18.
