In an interview with Radio Liberty, said the acting Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Lyubomir Mandziy.
“In Ukraine, in 190 schools, training was conducted in Russian. As of the next academic year, for students in grades 5 and above, 80% of the program should be taught in Ukrainian only. To organize this, many activities were carried out by Ukrainian language teachers. These teacher trainings took place in different parts of Ukraine. All the teachers participated in these trainings. In fact, we can apply the standard of the education law, as well as the standard of the comprehensive general secondary education law, ”said Mandziy.

As noted, in the fall of 2017, the education law came into force. The rule of law concerning the official language of education has been criticized in certain circles in Ukraine and abroad. In July 2019, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine declared the language article of the “Education” Law constitutional.
In April 2019, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the law “guaranteeing the functioning of the Ukrainian language as a state language”. The law came into force, with the exception of certain provisions, on July 16.
