Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin on Thursday, September 28, submitted the Law of Ukraine On Education to the European Commission for Democracy through Law (the Venice Commission) to obtain an expert opinion.

Klimkin said this on 1+1, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the revised Law of Ukraine On Education came in force on Thursday, September 28, 2017.

Hungary said it would block all Ukrainian European aspirations over new language provisions of the law.

Deputy Chairperson of the Presidential Administration Kostiantyn Yelyseyev attributed the harsh reaction of the Hungarian authorities about the revised law On Education to an upcoming parliamentary election that Hungary faces in 2018.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman has instructed Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin and Education and Science Minister Liliya Hrynevych to hold consultations with ambassadors of member states of the European Union on the language norms of the law on education.

Ukraine and heads of diplomatic missions have agreed a plan for implementation of language terms within the new wording of the Law of Ukraine On Education.

Ukraine is ready to send the law to the Council of Europe for assessment of the language provisions.

Ukraine promised to go over the details and separate provisions of the law to make sure they fall in with the baseline legal grounds.

Russia considered the provisions of the law as violating rights of Russian-speaking population in Ukraine.

Poland, Hungary, Romania and Moldova expressed their concerns that the language provision of the revised law impair rights of national minorities in Ukraine.
