Russian-language schools to switch to Ukrainian language of instruction from Sept 2020

“There are still Russian-language schools in Ukraine. But since September 2020, such schools switch to the Ukrainian language of instruction … And schools with the languages of national minorities that belong to the languages of the European Union – from September 2023. We must prepare them for this transition,” said Novosad on the air of the Pryamiy channel.

The minister noted that in such schools, which will mainly study in the Ukrainian language, it will remain possible to study the native language or literature, in fact, in their own language. “If we are talking about the Russian minority, this will be a separate subject, in addition it will be possible to choose additional extra curriculum courses,” added Novosad.

  1. Expect to hear more whining about Ukrainians speaking Ukrainian. The Moskali won’t like it because they want everyone to speak the language of Lenin and Stalin and Orban won’t like it because Hungarian will be taught as a secondary language in a country other than Hungary. The language Nazis are coming and Ukraine should tell them they will change when Ukrainian is taught in their counties as the primary language….
