“The position of President [Viktor Yanukovych] is that it is
necessary to adopt this national program before the elections,” he told
reporters during his visit to Zhytomyr region on Friday, Aug.24.
Lytvyn stressed the need to envisage funding for this program this year and in the state budget for 2013.
He said that several language bills had been registered in the
Verkhovna Rada and added that the consideration of these documents would
be complicated, “because there will be attempts to rely on the
political process, rather than on a practical result.”
