Ukraine to implement responsible, prudent language policy11-11-2013 11:02

*This is what President Viktor Yanukovych said in his message to
congratulate his compatriots on the Ukrainian Writing and Language Day. "I
assure you that the authorities will continue their efforts to implement a
responsible and prudent policy aimed to support and develop the Ukrainian
language based on the principles of social unity and harmony," Yanukovych

He noted that the written word from the times of Kievan Rus has contributed
to the intellectual rise of the people, safeguarding its original spiritual
traditions, national identity and culture. "A decisive place in the
emergence of the modern Ukrainian literary language belongs to Taras
Shevchenko - the glorious genius, whose 200th birth anniversary we will
mark publicly the following year. The Kobzar's precepts have become our
sign, for they are full of love for the native land, a belief in a happy
future for it. They also today inspire us to noble deeds, which endorse
Ukraine's path to the European community," the message reads.
