Venice Commission (the European Commission for Democracy through Law) got the request to estimate the Ukrainian law on language, as the Council of Europe reported.
According to the message, on May 22, the President of Venice Commission received a letter with the request to provide the conclusion on the law “On provision of functioning of the Ukrainian language as the state one”.
As it was reported earlier, on April 25, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the draft law #5670-d on the provision of the functioning of the Ukrainian language as the state one in the second reading and in general.
The status of Ukraine's state language will be endorsed over the course of the next ten years when the government implements the respective program.
On May 18, Russia’s representation to the UN appealed to the Chairman of the Security Council asking to call the session because Verkhovna Rada adopted the language law. However, UN Security Council denied Russia discussion the Ukrainian language law.
