Kiev responded to convocation of the UN Security Council by Russia on language


Klimkin emphasized that such laws exist in many democratic states long ago. The Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavel Klimkin, commenting on the offer of Russia to call the UN Security Council because of the language law, told that Ukrainian did not acquire any special rights, and in terms of the international practice there was nothing extraordinary. "Ukrainian did not acquire any special rights and privileges which could cause though the slightest suspicions concerning undemocratic character or chauvinism. Just in Ukraine at last could adopt the law on a state language as that was demanded for a long time by our Constitution", - he wrote on the page on Facebook on May 18. Klimkin emphasized that such laws exist in many democratic states long ago and Ukrainian on their background looks quite standardly as provides to Ukrainian the same right and opportunities which the state language in any civilized to the country has. "The Kremlin consciously swindles with the concepts "ethnic Russian" and "Russian-speaking person", putting between them an equal-sign assuming the right to protect them even weapon. And with Russian at us any problems. We have problems with those in Russia who does not want to see independent cathedral Ukraine and the Ukrainian political nation", - Klimkin noted. At the end of April the Verkhovna Rada the vast majority of voices adopted the law assigning to Ukrainian the status of the only thing state which becomes obligatory for use practically in all spheres of life, except for personal contact and religion.
