The winner of the presidential election showman Volodymyr Zelensky said that after taking office he will analyze the law on the Ukrainian language in order to uphold the rights of all citizens.
This is stated in his comments distributed by the press service of the Ze! team.
“After my inauguration as the President, a thorough analysis of this law will be made to ensure that all constitutional rights and interests of all citizens of Ukraine are respected. According to the results of the analysis, I will respond in accordance with the constitutional powers of the President of Ukraine and in the interests of citizens,” Zelensky said.
At the same time, Zelensky notes that the Ukrainian language is the only state language in Ukraine.
“So it was, so it is, and so it will be. On this issue – no compromise. The state should take care of the development of the Ukrainian language, of expanding the scope of its consumption. This is also unconditional, the whole society agrees. The question is in the methods by which we implement this strategic course,” he believes.
“My principled position is that the state should contribute to the development of the Ukrainian language by creating incentives and positive examples, not bans and punishments, complicating bureaucratic procedures, multiplying the number of officials instead of reducing them,” adds Zelensky.
He believes that since today Ukraine faces serious challenges, it is necessary to “initiate and adopt such laws and such decisions that consolidate society, and not vice versa.”
