A meeting of the UN Security Council may take may 20

The functioning of the Ukrainian language in Ukraine in no way threatened international peace and security, said the spokesperson of the permanent mission of Ukraine to the UN.

Russia has asked to convene a meeting of the UN Security Council in connection with the adoption by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine of the law On functioning of Ukrainian as the state language. This was announced by the speaker of the permanent mission of Ukraine to the UN Oleg Nikolenko on Saturday, may 18.

“Today it became known that the delegation of the Russian Federation addressed to the Chairman of the UN Security Council with a request to convene a meeting in connection with the adoption by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine of the law On functioning of Ukrainian as the state language”. The meeting can be held next Monday”, – Nikolenko wrote on his page in Facebook.

He stressed that the functioning of the Ukrainian language in Ukraine in no way threatened international peace and security, the maintenance of which is the task of the UN security Council, so “comment in fact this is an absurd case that has surprised not only Ukraine, it makes no sense”.

“This law is our internal matter, which the Kremlin is trying to politicize,” said Olga Nicolenco.

He considers such actions of Russia as an attempt to marginalize the world’s key area of security policies, “to turn her into some evening shows in the style of the first Russian propaganda channel”.

“The decision on the date and time of the meeting must be approved by the head. In the year – Indonesia”, – Nikolenko added.

We will remind, on April 25, the Verkhovna Rada adopted in the second reading the bill language. Amendments to the document, the parliamentarians considered almost two months – from February 28.

And on may 15 the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has signed the language law. According to him, the document is verified so that no political force had no reason to initiate its revision.

The Russian foreign Ministry said that the Ukrainian law on language involves “forced Ukrainization, actually total”, and also contradicts the Constitution of Ukraine.
