Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin commented on the proposition of three former Presidents of Ukraine, saying that endorsing the Ukrainian language will take over a year, as he wrote on Twitter.

Three former Presidents of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk, Leonid Kuchma, and Viktor Yushchenko addressed the current President, Petro Poroshenko, with an appeal to make 2018 the year of endorsing the Ukrainian language.

Commenting on this, Pavlo Klimkin said it would take more than a year and instead, it’s possible to dedicate the year to history.

“It’s a worthy initiative of three Presidents. But endorsing the Ukrainian language should rather be a national project, which won’t fit into just one year. We can dedicate the year to history - there are things to do,” the Foreign Minister said.

As it was reported earlier, Ukraine is trying to strengthen the position of the Ukrainian language in the country, including through education law, which envisages increasing the number of subjects taught in Ukrainian in schools.
