“This action is aimed at relieving tension over the law and showing
that the president understands the concerns about the language problem,
and worries over the status and prospects of the Ukrainian language,”
the analyst said, while commenting to Interfax-Ukraine on the signing of
the language law by the president and the order to set up a respective
working group.

Fesenko added that he had predicted such a scenario a long time ago,
because the president, from the standpoint of national interests, “wants
the public not to be split on the language principle, but to be more or
less consolidated.”

“Another thing is that at present, during the election campaign, his
party’s interest requires the adoption of a law that foresees the
strengthening of the status of the Russian language. So the president
tried to find a compromise,” the analyst said.
