Ukrainian Education Minister Hrynevych to clarify education law for CoE experts

On Friday, October 6, Education and Science Minister of Ukraine Lilia Hrynevych holds meetings with experts of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg to explain the provisions of the recently adopted law on education.

Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the Council of Europe Dmytro Kuleba posted this on Twitter.

"We start the day of educational diplomacy with the meeting of Minister Hrynevych with the experts of the Council of Europe. We will talk about reform and language all day long," Kuleba wrote.

As reported, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the education law on September 5. The law, in particular, regulates the use of the Ukrainian language in education. On September 25, President Petro Poroshenko signed it.

The law stipulates that children from ethnic minorities in Ukraine shall continue to learn their native language and start to study other subjects in the state language in the high school. If the language of the ethnic minority is that of the languages of the European Union, one or more disciplines may be taught in it.

At the same time, some countries, which have their national communities in Ukraine, protested against the provision of the education law stipulating that children from ethnic minorities shall study subjects in the Ukrainian language. In particular, the government of Hungary stated that it would block all further decisions of the European Union aimed at rapprochement with Ukraine because of the education law.
