The State Language Protection Commissioner Taras Kremin considers the issue of language assimilation of children, who were forced to leave abroad, a big problem. He said this for the TV channel "Espresso".
"I have repeatedly emphasized that we are obliged to control everything that takes place in ensuring the educational process, including in order to meet the language needs of our children abroad," he said.
According to Taras Kremin, the language law has all the tools that make language assimilation impossible for schoolchildren or students. In particular, Article 3 of the Law defines that among the tasks - "the spread of the Ukrainian language in the world and assistance in meeting the linguistic needs of Ukrainians abroad and citizens of Ukraine living or temporarily staying outside Ukraine".
"In conditions of war, we must do everything to make the Ukrainian language to be heard and to be learned outside of Ukraine, and to create better opportunities for its mastering," he stressed.
Commenting on the discussions that arose after the publication of the results of surveys conducted by the University of Warsaw and the University of Economics and Humanities in Warsaw on the attitude of Poles to Ukrainian refugees who speak Russian, Taras Kremin noted: “I do not understand such parents who, being abroad, do not think about the Ukrainian future of their children. It should be put an end to such threats . It's time for a change!”
