MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Ihor Shurma was outraged by the attitude of deputies from the “European Choice” coalition to the discussion of the draft law No. 5670-d on the state language.
“For two weeks in a row in the half-empty hall of the parliament, the draft law on language No. 5670-d has been being discussed. However, deputies from pro-government parties simply ignore meetings, although this law requires the support of not only members of the relevant Committee. Ignoring the consideration of the draft law, they will blindly come to vote for it. Similarly, the majority of deputies did it earlier in relation to other draft laws of the authorities. It’s a shame of the ruling coalition, which shows the Ukrainians its true attitude to this issue and does not consider it necessary to work on the draft law in parliament,” the oppositionist stated.
According to Ihor Shurma, Article 10 of the Constitution clearly states Ukrainian as the state language, but does not provide for the adoption of additional laws. “With the language law, the authorities are trying to cover up the traces of their unprofitable personnel policy. Why were three hundred “Varyags” appointed to the government, who did more harm than good to the country, including ignoring the state language?” Ihor Shurma emphasized.
