Yushchenko defines priorities in state language policy

Yesterday at 16:21 | Interfax-Ukraine Outgoing Ukrainian President
Victor Yushchenko has offered to establish a central executive agency
that will take charge of state language policy, develop state target
programs, and take steps to support public initiatives on the language

This was stated in the decrees posted on the official site of the head
of state on Feb. 22. Yushchenko also proposes the launch of a
constructive dialogue between the central authorities, local
governments and non-governmental organizations to settle language
issues. Relevant bills are to be prepared and submitted to the
Verkhovna Rada to implement the measures specified in the decrees.
