Ukraine has no tendency of closing down Russian schools, Education and Science Minister Stanislav Nikolayenko says.

As many as 1,2000 Russian schools and 1,800 mixed schools operate in Ukraine, he said. The issue of closing down is considered by parents. Assuming there are 10 to 15 couples, seeking their children to learn Russian, Stanislav Nikolayenko reassured.

Meanwhile, Director of the Ukrainian Department of the International Institute of the Humanitarian -Political studies Volodymyr Malenkovych says that rights of Russian-speaking Ukrainians are being bitterly violated, especially in the sector of education. Alas, only 26 Russian schools operate in Kyiv of the total of 13,000.

The Regions Party, advocating the Russian language, has approved a state program, aiming at establishing Ukrainian schools on the basis of Russian to replace them, Cabinet’s press office reports.
