Hungary and Russian Federation lead criticism of Ukraine's new education law — Irish Times

Hungary and Russian Federation lead criticism of Ukraine's new education law — Irish Times”

"In this letter the Hungarian government draws the attention of global organizations to the adoption by the Verkhovna Rada of a new law on education, which, in the opinion of Budapest, will infringe on the rights of the Hungarian minority in Ukraine", reads the report.

On September 5, Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada passed the law on education.

The Russian Foreign Ministry stressed that it sees "this move as an attempt by the "Maidan" authorities to implement the full Ukrainization of the country's education system, which is a direct contradiction to both its Constitution and Kiev's global obligations in the humanitarian sphere".

Ukrainian officials have rejected the suggestion that minority languages will be sidelined. It maintains the facade of "federation" of republics and represents itself as a multi-national state but does all it can to stamp out usage of any language that challenges Russian language primacy and insists on conformance to Russian educational requirements.

Ukrainian Minister for Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin poses during an interview in Paris on March 9, 2017.

Russian-backed rebels carved out two strongholds in eastern Ukraine following the country's 2014 pro-European revolution and fighting continues between the separatists and troops loyal to Kiev.

It recalled that the law has sparked criticism from the Foreign Ministries of Hungary, Poland, Romania and Moldova's president.

Hungary's foreign minister Peter Szijjarto said Monday that Ukraine "stabbed Hungary in the back" with the law.
