Yushchenko issues decree on language policy strategy

KYIV, February 22 /UKRINFORM/. Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko
has issued a decree on a language policy strategy, UKRINFORM has
reported, citing the official website of the head of state. The
strategy says that in order to implement state language policy, it is
necessary to draft and submit for consideration by the Verkhovna Rada
respective bills, select a central executive agency responsible for
state language policy, draw up and ensure the implementation of state
programs, take measures to support social initiatives, and maintain a
constructive dialogue between local government agencies and public
organizations regarding the settlement of language issues.

It is foreseen that the realization of the strategy will help create a
proper national cultural, language and information space, and ensure
economic and organizing conditions to guarantee the language rights of
Ukrainian citizens and the unity of the state.
