At the special session on October 9, the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Council dismissed the protest of acting regional prosecutor Volodymyr Havryushenko against paragraph 1 of the decision of the Regional Council of August 23, 2012 on compliance with the Constitution of Ukraine concerning the functioning of the state Ukrainian language in Ivano-Frankivsk region.

In its protest, the prosecutor demanded to cancel the paragraph 1 of the decision of the Regional Council, which invalidates the law of Ukraine on principles of national language policy in Ivano-Frankivsk region.

Prosecutor pointed to the fact that by taking this decision, the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Council went beyond its powers under Article 43 of the law on local self-government in Ukraine and violated the requirements of Art. 19 of the Constitution, which requires local authorities to act within the powers and in the way prescribed by the Constitution of Ukraine and laws of Ukraine.

Skripnychuk pointed out that, under the Constitution, the state language is Ukrainian, and, on this basis, it is a part of the constitutional order.
