It may be teaching one or more courses in the languages of the countries of the EU. From 1 September 2020 education will be fully Ukrainian.

«In the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation is well aware that the so-called education reform in Ukraine is aimed spearheaded primarily on the destruction of the remnants of Russian-language education and pursues the ultimate goal of complete assimilation of the Russian population of Ukraine. Continuing the previous line in the language question, the Ukrainian authorities again provoke the situation and recreate the reasons, which became the starting point for the development of the conflict, and then the civil war in the East of Ukraine», — reads the statement of the state Duma.
