The authorities of Poland have not yet decided on their position on Ukraine’s new law on education. This was stated by the ambassador of Poland Jan Piekło, in Lublin to Ukrinform during the Congress of Eastern European Initiatives.

"Poland did not join the letter of the countries that spoke out against the law. We are waiting for a meeting with Hrynevych, where we want to hear her opinion," the ambassador said.

In turn, former Polish education minister Krzysztof Stanowski said that he understood the Ukrainian side. It is correct that those who live in another country should know its country’s language. According to him, all who live in Poland, pass exact sciences exams solely in Polish.
