“A new democratic majority will cancel this law and other anti-state
laws and bring Yanukovych and Lytvyn to account for abusing the
constitution and the national language,” the opposition said in a
statement posted on Web site of the Batkivschyna Party on Wednesday.

The authors of the statement said they believe that gross violations
of the constitution and the Verkhovna Rada’s rules of procedure at all
stages of the consideration of the law leave no doubt as to its “legal
nullity.”

“This so-called law cannot take effect, because in fact it was not
adopted at first or second reading. Lytvyn and Yanukovych did not have
the right to sign it,” reads the statement.
