The Law "On the Principles of language policy"
was submitted
to the Verkhovna Rada by MPs Vadym Kolesnichenko and Serhiy
Kivalov. According to the law, the language of the Verkhovna Rada and acts

elections, referendums, science, and education, the focus is on the human
right to freely use any language.
