KIEV, November 7 /TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Friday ruled out any possibility of granting the state status to the Russian language in Ukraine.
“We, Ukrainians, speak various languages but only one of them — Ukrainian — has had and will always have a special state status,” Poroshenko said when awarding the Taras Shevchenko National Award to Ukrainian cultural workers at a ceremony on Friday.
“We know for sure that Ukraine lives so long as the Ukrainian language lives,” Poroshenko stressed.
