Beginning on 1 September 2018, students will only be able to study in Russian or the languages of other national minorities before the fifth grade. And beginning in 2020, Russian, Hungarian, Romanian, and other languages will be removed from the lower grades as well. Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Russkiy Mir Foundation, Vyacheslav Nikonov, reflects on how this trend meshes with Ukraine’s attempt to become a full-fledged European country.
