As reported by Censor.NET citing Interfax-Ukraine, the president announced it at the celebration of the 400th anniversary of the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in Kyiv on Thursday.
"The academy was the first to introduce two working languages - Ukrainian and English. And I think it would be very nice if in Ukraine, and not only at Mohylianka [the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy - ed.], another working language was used along with Ukrainian. English deserves to be that language," Poroshenko said.
He also noted that the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy was the leader of novel aspirations in Ukrainian education. In particular, it gave birth to several movements: for fair entry, academic integrity, anti-corruption, university autonomy.
"For over a year, Mohylianka has been contributing to the victory in the east, and I would like to thank all academy's students and alumni who have been partial towards our victory at the front during these 18 months," Poroshenko said.
