Ukrainians to be monolingual

Ukrainian president is against granting the Russian Language a status of the second state language.
      
      At the press conference on December 27, Viktor Yushchenko, the Ukrainian president, said that if a referendum on an issue of granting the Russian language a status of a state language was held, he personally would be against it.
      
      Mr. Yushchenko marked his respect towards the Ukrainian constitution allowing only one state language in the country. The president noted that the Ukrainian language politics meets European standards. His words shouldnt be regarded as a program against any language, but a program towards the Ukrainian language development. According to his statement Ukraine pays enough attention to the Russian language. It spends about 50% of state education funds for its development.
