The law "On principles of the state language policy" has not affected school education programs in Kyiv, chairman of the Kyiv City State Administration Oleksandr Popov said during the Kyiv city pedagogical conference "The first step to the school of future," ForUm correspondent reported.
"We have to carry out the law. It provides for the activity of territorial community. This request is a reaction of the government," Popov said adding that "as of today, they do not have such requests. They start the school year in the ordinary course."
He stressed that if any local communities offer to open schools and classes in the languages of national minorities in the capital, such issue will be submitted to the Kyiv deputy corps.
According to him, now the capital is planning to reconstruct old and to open new schools. "But if there are suggestions, for example, from Armenian, Belarusian or other government or business, we will support it" Popov said.
As for the introduction of Russian as the regional language in the capital, Popov noted: "My personal opinion is that the capital is a city where we should discuss this issue seriously. If I were a MP of the City Council and voted for this issue, I would have abstained from taking such decision at this stage. "
