Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov spoke in support of the idea of Ukraine's transition to the Latin alphabet and the rejection of the Cyrillic alphabet. He stated this in an interview with Radio Liberty.
"I am standing for it. I believe that this will be one of the fundamental things that we need to get rid of the Cyrillic alphabet and switch to the Latin alphabet. As for the language, you know my position. I am for two languages in our country. English should be known across the country. Because if we are talking about the civilized world, then English is the language of civilized communication, "Danilov emphasized.
In his opinion, everyone in the country should know English, and it should be taught starting from kindergarten, as well as in schools. At the same time, Danilov admitted that it will be difficult for older people to learn English.
In 2018, at that time, Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin proposed to discuss the possible introduction of the Latin alphabet in Ukraine along with the Cyrillic alphabet. This has generated conflicting reviews.
For example, at that time the director of the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory Volodymyr Vyatrovich opposed the rejection of the Cyrillic alphabet.
