“We propose to give the Russian language a status of the second state language in the course of Constitution of Ukraine, by means of national referendum,” the document says.

Additionally, Crimean parliament offers to give Russian the status of the regional language in those regions, where the majority of population speaks it.

“We hope for understanding of necessity to observe the right on using state, Russian and other national languages in all spheres of public life,” the text of the appeal states.
