"The law on languages is currently being examined by the Venice Commission and the European Charter will be implemented in Ukraine," Yanukovych said in an interview with national television channels that was recorded on Friday and aired on Tuesday.

According to the head of state, political speculations regarding the language issue have not affected the attitude of people towards their mother tongue.
