Russian not to be spoken officially in Ukraine
Banner: Russian is native for Ukraine

The Ukrainian language will remain the only state language in the country, said President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych in the city of Kanev by the grave of Taras Shevchenko, where the celebrations in honor of the poets birth anniversary are being held.
      Meanwhile, during the election campaign, Yanukovych claimed he would seek to make Russian a state language if he were elected a president.Though later, speaking to voters, he said that this would change the constitution, and the Party of Regions did not have enough votes in parliament.
      Therefore, Mr.Yanukovich offered to make Russian an official language of communication in those regions of the country where the most people would vote for this.
      At a recent meeting with Russian President, he confirmed that all the necessary laws would be passed soon.
