President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych believes that the excessive focused attention to the language issue splits Ukraine, the head of the state told reporters at a briefing during his visit to Kharkiv.
Yanukovych noted that he always speaks in any region in the language of people who live there. That is why he gave a speech in Russian during the opening ceremony of the Independence Monument in Kharkiv.
He stressed that he always supported and will continue to support a mutual understanding and agreement in the country regardless of the region in which people live.
Yanukovych said that the funding, attitude to people, all social programs will be the same for everyone.
"We will never divide people according to the language they speak and the region where they live, all people are the same," Yanukovych said.
