KIEV, March 01, 13:17 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, appointed by the Verkhovna Rada, called on urgent work on a new law on language, which would offer guarantees for all national minorities.

On February 23, the Verkhovna Rada /parliament/ repealed the law on the state language policy, where 232 members of the parliament voted for the decision.

The law came into force on August 10, 2012. Under the law, the Russian language received a status of a regional one in the territories where at least ten percent of the population considered it to be their mother tongue. The government reported the Russian language received the status in the country’s 13 of 27 regions.
