He said this during a morning meeting of parliament on Wednesday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.
"I emphasize that I will not delay this process. Collect your signatures, colleagues, and I promise you that once the necessary signatures are collected, I will immediately put this question to the vote with one nuance – only after I, as chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, sign the law on the Ukrainian language," Parubiy said.
Parubiy also recalled how the so-called Kolesnichenko-Kivalov language law, which granted Russian the status of a regional language, had been adopted and added that the Ukrainian parliament would no longer return to that era.
"Tomorrow we will adopt the language law in a democratic, open, public manner, without militants. Pay attention how you adopted the Kolesnichenko-Kivalov law, because the Ukrainian parliament has a pro-Ukrainian majority, it is working and will continue to work," Parubiy said.
Earlier, Valeriy Pysarenko, a people's deputy from the Vidrodzhennia Party, started collecting signatures for the dismissed of Verkhovna Rada Chairman Andriy Parubiy.
