Party of Regions leader Viktor Yanukovych has labeled as absurdity the government’s decision obliging the schools to use the Ukrainian language in everyday life.
“This is another stupidity and another possibility to see what the policies of Yulia Tymoshenko will be, if a miracle happens and she will come to power,” he said in an interview with reporters in Odesa.
While commenting on the cabinet of minister’s decision, he noted that one cannot humiliate people, who got used to speaking their native language.
This decision will not be supported by the Ukrainian people, Yanukovych said.
As reported, the Cabinet of Ministers has issued a resolution imposing the use of the Ukrainian language in everyday life in governmental and general education establishments.
