Yanukovych: Language policy should facilitate integration of all
ethnic groups into Ukrainian society

Ukraine's language policy should facilitate the integration of
representatives of all ethnic groups into Ukrainian society, President
Viktor Yanukovych said in an interview with the analytical magazine
"Ukraine and the World in 2013. Global Agenda," a joint project of New
York Times News Service & Syndicate and Segodnya Multimedia.

"Our priority is to implement the language policy that will be
considered and balanced, to promote the integration into Ukrainian
society of representatives of all ethnic groups in our country," the
head of state said.

According to Yanukovych, the adoption of relevant, modern legislation
in the field of language is a very important task, because the
problems that have accumulated haven't been solved for years. "The law
that was adopted needs improvement. And relevant work is being done,"
he said.

At the same time, the president stressed that the laws should be based
on the principles of development and proper functioning of the
Ukrainian language.
