KIEV, February 23, 17:58 /ITAR-TASS/. Leader of the Batkivschina party faction in Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada, Arseny Yatsenyuk, is confident that there is nothing posing a threat for the Russian-speaking Ukrainians, he said
“It /the Russian-speaking population - eds. Itar-Tass/ is protected by the law,” Yatsenyuk said commenting on Verkhovna Rada’s decree on annulment of the law on state language policy. But he did not clarify which particular law ensured this protection.
MP Oleg Tyagnibok, leader of the far-right Svoboda party, promised to initiate a new bill on regional languages.
“That bill /on ethnic groups/ was adopted with a gross violation of law,” he said. “I had talks with some representatives of national minorities at the parliament. We will have to adopt a new law on languages in the shortest term, the law that will satisfy everybody.”
“I’m telling you that no ethnic group will be repressed in any issue including language,” Tyagnibok said.
