Ukraine - President: "distortions" in language policy

President: "distortions" in language policy made by former government
brought about humiliation of national minorities in Ukraine
Ukrainian language remains official in Ukraine although the
"distortions" in language policy made by former government brought
about humiliation and infringement of rights of both Russian citizens
and representatives of other nationalities in Ukraine, said President
Viktor Yanukovych at his today’s meeting with Taras Shevchenko
National Prize winners.

"All these thing must be corrected and reflected in language policy,
including in the process of implementing the European Charter for
Regional or Minority Languages", he said.
