Hungary's Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto earlier stated that because of the language provisions of the Ukrainian law on education, Hungary would block all steps toward Ukraine-EU rapprochement in the framework of the Eastern Partnership program and also any initiatives that contribute to Ukraine's European integration.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine has called “balanced and constructive” the opinion of the Venice Commission regarding the language article of Law "On Education".
"The VC stressed that the issue of content and scope of rights are exclusively within the competence of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine. A number of questions regarding the use of languages should be resolved by special laws. So, the accusations on the part of Hungary are not supported," the ministry's press service noted.
