Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine is not going to consider Servant of the People MP Maksym Buzhansky's version of the bill № 2362 "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts Concerning Teaching in the State Language in Educational Institutions" at today’s session. This is evidenced by the parliament’s agenda.
It should be noted that it was planned to consider the bill today, on July 16. It was reported that some people wanted to gather under the walls of the parliament on this day in order to prevent its adoption. As of now, there are 40 issues on the parliament’s agenda today, but there is no language bill among them.
It is worth noting that Buzhansky's bill is to repeal the part of the law on language that requires students of grades 5-11 of Russian-language schools to switch to the Ukrainian language from September 1, 2020.
As we reported earlier, on July 8, the Cabinet of Ministers appointed Taras Kremin as the new Commissioner for the Protection of the State Language.
He is a professor at the Mykolaiv National Agrarian University and the Mykolayiv Regional Institute of Postgraduate Pedagogical Education.
