GENEVA, October 3. /TASS/. There is a very high risk of a further polarization of Ukrainian society, Astrid Tors, a spokeswoman for the problems of ethnic minorities at the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) said on Friday at a session of the organization’s parliamentary assembly.
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 two weeks ago and it is called upon to determine the pattern of a temporary decentralization of power, but there are still very many questions as far as the implementation of that law is concerned.
