Ukraine and Poland will hold consultations at the level of the relevant ministers on the provisions of Ukrainian law "On Education". This was stated by Polish ambassador to Ukraine Jan Peklo, TV channel 112 Ukraine reports.
He noted that Poland wants to clarify the position of Ukraine on the language article of the document.
"We do not know how the process will take place, we want to clarify the position of the Ukrainian side, and we will also hold consultations with the Polish national minority in Ukraine," he said.
According to Peklo, the Polish side considers it necessary to provide Ukraine with the opportunity to study the native language for national minorities.
As previously reported, Hungary announced its refusal to support Ukraine's rapprochement with Europe until the law on education is changed. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin noted that during the meeting with his Hungarian counterpart, he explained the details of the document against which Budapest stands.
The new law on education was signed by Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko on September 25. In particular, it implements 12-years-long school program and allows teaching languages of national minorities only in specially created classes in Ukrainian schools. This particular decision evoked outrage in Moldova, Romania, Russia, and Hungary. Budapest even threatens to slow down the process of Ukraine’s integration with the EU.
