DONETSK, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian language retains the status of the regional language in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, Andrei Shishatsky, chairman of the Donetsk regional council, told an administrative meeting on Monday. “Russian language is the regional language in the Donetsk region, as the law ‘On the Fundamentals of the State Language Policy’ has not been abrogated,” Shishatsky said, as reported the regional state administration’s press service on Monday.
Ukraine’s parliament on February 23, 2014 voted for the abrogation of the law and this caused social tension in some regions of the country. Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Oleksandr Turchynov, appointed by the Verkhovna Rada interim president of Ukraine, had not signed the law.
At the same time, Turchynov made instructions for setting up a working group to draft a new “language” law taking into account Ukrainian regions’ interests.
