As we reported earlier, according to Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, the Ukrainian government has no intention to submit any changes to the law on education in order to please other countries.

"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.
