Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko states that she personally and BYuT faction declared, declare and will declare that in Ukraine there is only one official language - Ukrainian and statements of Head of the Presidential Secretariat of Ukraine Viktor Baloha she considers as provocative.
First Vice Prime Minister Oleksandr Turchynov explained position of the Prime Minister.
"Ukrainian is the sole official language in Ukraine. This is a position of Yulia Tymoshenko and headed by her political force was, is and will be irrevocable and all other statements are political speculation of BYT's opponents," Oleksandr Turchynov stated.
Commenting upon the matter of the Law on public service, Oleksandr Turchynov noted that "anyone who can read Ukrainian at least, would see no norms on official character of Russian language in the law".
Nevertheless, as the draft includes a norm on knowledge of different languages by public employees, just at BYuT's urgent request the draft has not been approved on the whole but sent for the second reading where this issue will be more clearly adjusted with the Constitution of the state. "In other case the law won't be voted," the First Vice Prime Minister said.
Oleksandr Turchynov also focused attention on direct text and evaluative coincidences in norms' interpretation of the bill on public service in the Sunday run-in of "Podrobytsi tyzhnia" and in Viktor Baloha's statement published on Monday. "It gives grounds to think that the "Inter" channel has again considered Baloha's oral recommendations or tried and grasped the meaning of secret instruction".
