Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych hopes that equal conditions will be created for studying of the Ukrainian language in Russia and Russian in Ukraine.

"We hope for the understanding of full-fledged bilateral conditions for studying of languages - Ukrainian on the Russian territory and Russian on the Ukrainian territory," Yanukovych told reporters after the fifth session of the Ukrainian-Russian Interstate Commission, which took place at Livadia Palace (Yalta) on July 12.

The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
