The state Duma officially accused Ukraine in the ethnocide of Russian population

“Signed by the President of Ukraine the Law “On education” would be an act of ethnocide (the destruction of the national identity of the ethnic group – “MK”) of the Russian people in Ukraine” , – reads the statement of the Russian Parliament.

In the state Duma emphasized that the signed by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko law “On education” violates the basic standards of the UN and the Council of Europe Convention on the protection of the linguistic identity of indigenous peoples and national minorities.

These rules have been enshrined in international treaties signed by the Ukrainian authorities. In addition, the bill violates the Constitution of Ukraine.

We will remind, earlier Ukraine has adopted a law on the gradual ban on the training (up to full) in schools in Russian and the languages of other national minorities.

In response, the Hungarian authorities have promised that in response to the policy of Kiev will block all further decisions of the European Union for closer ties with Ukraine.
