But how should he talk with Medvedev?

President of the World Congress of Ukrainians Askold Lozynskiy proposes President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko to talk with his Russian counterpart Dmutriy Medvedev via an interpreter.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, A.Lozynskiy claimed this to a press conference in Kyiv on Tuesday.

The World Congress of Ukrainians head is convinced that the President of Ukraine must speak only in Ukrainian language.

“The President [of Ukraine - UNIAN] at meetings with the President of Russia on the Ukrainian territory must communicate via an interpreter, speak Ukrainian, and not show his knowledge of Russian. If there is a respect to this language, it will develop in Ukraine”, A.Lozynskiy claimed.

He also expressed a belief that powers do not apply enough forces to develop the Ukrainian language.
