 Bogatyreva Accuses her Party Fellows: Kivalov and Kolesnichenko Cannot Find the Time to Talk about the Language Matter

The authors of the Law "On the Basics of the State Language Policy" Sergiy Kivalov and Vadym Kolesnichenko do not take part in the meetings of the working group that is revising the law.

According to UNIAN, the Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Health Bogatyreva stated this fact in Donetsk.

"We have an instruction from the Head of State to create a working group, to attract all those expressing a wish and those who developed the law. Kivalov and Kolesnichenko are not the owners, the law is in operation, it is the Law of Ukraine. We invited them into the working group, but they, however, have no time to talk", said the minister.

She noted that "the working group is represented by all scientific elite on the matter that we are discussing. That is why I would not say that there are some wrongful discussions of the law. We will continue inviting the authors of the language law to the working group".

She underlined that the law needs to be amended and improved.

Vice Prime Minister explained that work on amendments to the language law will be painstaking, transparent, collective and the final bill will be thoroughly examined and scientifically grounded".

"I think that all members of the working group have to be heard. We make decisions by a way of voting and the product that will be produced by this group will be directed to the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine for an expertise of our suggestions. Subsequently the law will be directed to the Cabinet of Ministers and the President of Ukraine where these amendments will be worked on", concluded Bogatyreva.
