KIEV, March 19 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s parliament has no draft law on granting the Russian language an official status on its agenda, parliamentary speaker Vladimir Litvin said on Monday in his comments on the president’s recent statement.
“Such a draft law is not on the parliament’s short-term agenda,” he said.
The speaker underlined that over 300 parliamentary votes are needed to make amendments to the Constitution.
Earlier, President Viktor Yanukovich said in the near future Ukraine would adopt a law on two official languages – Ukrainian and Russia.
“Ukraine is interested in this move, people who mainly speak two languages – Ukrainian and Russian are interested in this,” he said.
