The problem of the Russian language and the attempts to change it created one of the causes of the current crisis, she said.
Latest developments in Ukraine show that the risks of further polarized changes in Ukrainian society are high and much remains unclear about the status of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics.
The law on the special status of separate districts of the Luhansk and Donetsk Republics is supposed to determine the pattern of a temporary decentralization of power, but there are still many questions as the implementation of that law is concerned.
President Petro Poroshenko on Friday suggested discussing a special status of the English language, rather than Russian, saying that English should be taught at Ukrainian schools and institutes. Poroshenko spoke in Lviv in the west of Ukraine where he arrived on a working visit.
"The second language compulsory to study at schools and institutes should be exceptionally English, but by no means Russian," Poroshenko said.
