“A workgroup created by the Ministry decided that an hour or two will be devoted to studying Crimean Tatar literature, as part of the school program of Ukrainian literature”, said Yuriy Kononenko, Director of Ministry’s Department for Elementary and Secondary-Level Education (Interfax-Ukraine).

According to the official, the group almost finished the list of the literary works recommended for the school program, adding that there are still some difficulties in translating these works in Ukrainian.

Previously, Presidential Envoy on the Affairs of Crimean Tatars, MP Mustafa Dzhemilev supported the idea to switch from the Cyrillic alphabet to the Latin one. Before 1928, Crimean Tatars used the Arab alphabet, from 1928 till 1939 – the Latin; since 1939, they’ve been using the Cyrillic alphabet.
