Poroshenko was referring to the strengthening of the position of the national language in the country. “We’ve done many years of humiliation, when the Ukrainian language in Ukraine had to save, he said. Today we have ambitions even higher: to introduce our culture and language so that their beauty and strength appreciated by the whole world.”
The President also said that Ukraine “severs the last ties that Moscow has tied us to himself, making us centuries to go to Church, which Shevchenko said it was “the Church-tomb””.
