The Ukrainian government has no intention to submit any changes to the law on education in order to please other countries. Dmytro Kuleba, the Foreign Minister of Ukraine, said so during the visit to Bucharest.
"As the Foreign Minister of Ukraine, I should act according to the incumbent legal framework of my country. When the law was passed, the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe offered a number of corrections. Ukraine submitted changes to the law and lived up to the recommendations of the Venice Commission. We have no plans to change the law again, so as to live up to demands of particular countries," the official said.
However, the Minister added that Ukraine was ready to implement the law so that it can protect its own interests and those of the neighboring countries, particularly Romania.
"I'd like to stress this once more: to me, the Romanian minority in Ukraine is our achievement. And so we will work so that Romanians in Ukraine remain Romanians, but at the same time they could be Ukrainians, too, so they could be integrated into our society," Kuleba said.
