Decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, which recognized the Law "On Ensuring the Functioning of Ukrainian as the State Language" as constitutional after two years of consideration, is the historic one without exaggeration. This was stated by the State Language Protection Commissioner Taras Kremin on-air of Channel 4.
"The court recognized that the language law is constitutional, and this decision is the historic one without exaggeration, - Taras Kremin mentioned. - It so happened in our country that pivotal, fundamental and political (strange to say, the state’s language norms are also referred to them) laws must undergo testing by the decision of the Constitutional Court. Although it would seem that Article 10 of the Constitution defines the Ukrainian language as the state language, so what other questions may Members of the Parliament have?”
“The Constitutional Court, being under difficult conditions for two years: political pressure, absence of the chairman of the court; careful, detailed review of all complaints - made the right, balanced, reasonable decision", - Taras Kremin said.
As known, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine recognized the Law of Ukraine “On Ensuring the Functioning of Ukrainian as the State Language” as constitutional. The relevant decision was made by the Court on July 14 at the plenary session of the Grand Chamber of the Court in the case on constitutional submission from 51 MPs of Ukraine.
