The leader of the Regions Party faction in the Verkhovna Rada, Oleksandr Yefremov, has said that the new Ukrainian parliament could adopt a new language law to replace the current one.

When asked whether the new parliament will cancel the adopted language law, he said: "As for its cancellation, you don't have to be clever to cancel something. You have to be cleverer to create something."

"If the next parliament is able to offer something more intelligent and constructive to solve the language problem, I think that MPs will react positively to this. If not, then all these are pre-election promises, PR campaigns and nothing more," he added.
