The draft law “On basics of the state language policy” consolidate the Ukrainian minority languages ​​(among them - the Russian, Belorussian, Tatar, Yiddish and others) the right to operate on a par with the state.

For example, if the bill passes, the 13 regions of Ukraine the Russian language will be recognized as a regional and can be used in all spheres of life of these areas, including public authorities at all levels. The only exception will be the Armed Forces and other military units of Ukraine.

In particular, the regional languages ​​will be used in legal proceedings, investigation, business. In passports, diplomas, military documents and other documents information can be made at the option of the national or regional languages.

Also in the case of a law on language policy reforms aimed at its realization, will be held in the areas of education and the media.
