Simferopol – Crimean Prime Minister Anatoliy Mohyliov has said that the Crimean Tatar language will be declared a regional language in the autonomy.

"Judging by the population of Crimean Tatars in Crimea, the Crimean Tatar language will most likely be declared a regional language in the autonomy," Mohyliov said in Simferopol on Wednesday, following a special sitting of the Crimean parliament, which instructed the Crimean government to draw up and submit by October 10, 2012 its proposals on the implementation of the law of Ukraine on the principles of the state language policy in the autonomy.

"The Council of Ministers of Crimea jointly with the deputies of the Supreme Council of Crimea will work to implement the law on the territory of Crimea," he said.
