A posting on the Web site of the Ukrainian parliament reads that the
speaker suggested developing a national program for the development of
Ukrainian language and passing a law on the development and use of
languages in Ukraine.

Lytvyn also “expressed his concern and his position on the issue, in
particular regarding the obvious legal flaws of the bill and its
possible consequences.”

Among the possible negative consequences of the implementation of the
bill, the speaker mentioned “constant political arguments, the erasing
of the legal status of the state, the actual prevailing of Russian
language, and the alleged expansion of the rights of representatives of
other nationalities.”
