Ukraine to heed Venice Commission recommendations on education law

Ukraine will take into account the recommendations of the Venice Commission regarding the law "On Education."

Ukrainian Deputy Justice Minister Natalia Sevostyanova said this live on the 112 Ukraine television channel on October 12, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The formulations [of the PACE decision on the education law] are tough, and here, of course, there was the work of those who currently do not have votes in PACE. In any case, I am sure that reference to the Venice Commission is the best way out of this situation, and all their recommendations will be taken into account," Sevostyanova said.

She also said that Ukraine was even interested in the conclusions of the Venice Commission as a third party.

As reported, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) adopted a decision containing recommendations regarding the Ukrainian law on education. The text of the decision contains the request to take into account all "without exception" recommendations that will be provided by the Venice Commission.
