In the corridors of the Palace of Europe in Strasbourg opponents of the new law on education in Ukraine are spreading leaflets with the myth that the government creates obstacles to the national menshinstva not only in the use of the native language but also in learning Ukrainian. It is reported by the European truth.

In addition, in their opinion, due to the poor training of teachers Hungarians in Transcarpathia get bad results of external independent testing (EIT) in Ukrainian after school.

“The new law on education destroying schools teaching in minority languages”, – stated in the leaflet.


It is also said that the deputies distribute pamphlets, which, it is argued that Ukrainian law is the worst in the region and provides examples of laws in Serbia, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, Moldova and Poland.
