The president offers to provide that the lawmakers should speak the state language.
Head of the state Volodymyr Zelensky defined this bill as urgent.
On August 29, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky says he would disband the newly shaped Parliament in a year - in case it fails to live up to the expectations of fellow Ukrainians.
