The Constitutional Court of Ukraine has decreed that regional languages and languages of ethnic minorities can be used in court along with the state language.

A relevant resolution in response to a query of 54 MPs was issued on December 13 and published on December 15.

"There are no grounds for recognizing as unconstitutional the provisions of parts 4 and 5 of Article 12 of the law "On the judicial system and the status of judges" about the use of regional languages or languages of ethnic minorities in courts along with the state language, under the law of Ukraine "On ratification of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages," the Constitutional Court's decree reads.

As a reminder, Party of Regions deputies Serhiy kivalov and Vadym Kolesnichenko registered in the parliament a draft bill, which provides for usage of regional languages and languages of ethnic minorities along with the state language.
