People seeking to obtain Ukrainian citizenship should be required to take Ukrainian language test in form of external independent evaluation — Fedir Venislavskyi

The level of Ukrainian language proficiency of people seeking to obtain Ukrainian citizenship must be determined by either professional educational institutions or independent evaluators. Fedir Venislavskyi, People’s Deputy of Ukraine, Member of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence made this statement at a briefing at Media Center Ukraine.
