The law on state language was another "nail in the no return" of the Crimea to Ukraine, said the ex-member of Parliament Eugene Moore in the TV channel "OUR". Recording of a policy published on their YouTube channel.
He stressed that Kiev signed the European Charter on regional languages and languages of national minorities, after which there appears a law that is contrary to this document.
"With our declared commitment to Europe we are absolutely violating all democratic norms and values of Europe itself. And the Crimea and the Donbass will endeavour to Ukraine with this law? That is, whether it promotes the reintegration of the territories? Whether it promotes the return of people’s desire to return to a Ukraine, which built the last six years? The answer, I think, is obvious. This clearly prevents it, than so worn our esteemed (or not respecting) "patriots". Well, it’s obvious is another nail in the return of these territories," said Moore.
He added that the Ukrainians "so bad live" not because of the language issue, and because of the troubles in the economy.
In mid-may, 2019, who was then the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has signed the law "On ensuring the functioning of Ukrainian as the state language", which requires the use of only Ukrainian language in almost all spheres of life.
However, acting Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has promised to conduct a thorough analysis of the law on state language in compliance with the Constitution. He noted that the law was passed "without a prior broad discussion with the public".
