More

Prime Minister Yatsenyuk stated that Ukraine suggests to Russia to recognize Ukrainian as a second official language on the territory of the Russian Federation.

He mentioned this on the 10th annual investment conference of Dragon Capital in Kyiv, as reported by Interfax.

“Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs made ​​a statement on the matter. The Ukrainian-speaking community is the largest in Russia and is completely natural for Ukrainian to be recognized as a second state language, or at least to carry a special status,” said Yatsenyuk.

He also urged the Russian government to open Ukrainian schools in Russia.

“I see that Russia is very worried about the Ukrainian Constitution and Ukrainian state system, and we are really just as worried about our Russian neighbors. We wish them the best of luck to them, so that everything will be well, and that $ 65 billion per quarter would not run out of their economy, and also that their Visa and Master Card credit cards would be functional,” said the Prime Minister of Ukraine.

Earlier today, the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine. As the Russian diplomats noted, “quite literally, the fate of Ukrainian statehood” depends on a timely constitutional reform.
