MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC stated this on the air of the program "Evening Prime" on the TV channel "112-Ukraine".
"This law ("On Education"- Ed.) is a strategic mistake of Ukraine. I have already submitted a draft law on changes to this law, which indicated that the language of studying could be the state language and the language of national minorities defined by local councils as regional. I think that by supporting this draft law, the Ukrainian parliament would have removed the great conflict that is brewing in the society," the politician stressed.
Nestor Shufrych also noted that after the adoption of the Law "On Education" he met with the leadership of Hungary. "I did not even think that their reaction would be so tough. However, frankly, it is fair. Moreover, I want to remind Mr. Klimkin (Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine - Ed.) that today Hungary is a full member of the European Union, and the fate of all issues related to Ukraine will depend on how it will vote," the oppositionist said.
"The actions that the Ukrainian authorities are now demonstrating are provocative and ill-conceived. When God wants to punish someone, he takes away the mind. This happened with the Ukrainian authorities," Nestor Shufrych concluded.
