Deputy PM Zaharieva: With Hungary, Romania and Greece, We Insist That Education Law in Ukraine Should not Affect Minority Rights

We have signed a joint letter with the Foreign Affairs Ministers of Hungary, Romania and Greece to Ukraine, we insist that the education law in Ukraine should not affect the rights of minorities and the education in mother tongue, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva told journalists, quoted by FOCUS News Agency. She commented on amendments to the Ukrainian education law which limit language teaching after grade 5.
Bulgaria’s Deputy Minister of Education talked to the one of Ukraine yesterday and was assured that the amendments would in no way affect the study of Bulgarian language in schools. There is an entirely Bulgarian school and a unique network of over 50 Bulgarian Sunday schools in Ukraine. Bulgarian is also studied in Ukrainian schools, Zaharieva explained.
The joint letter will also be sent to the Council of Europe and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
