It is reported by UNIAN referring to the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita and the Hungarian Heti Valasz.

However, I’m not going to politicize this issue, given the difficulties of Ukraine due to Russian aggression,” – said the foreign Minister of Poland.

The pole explained that Ukrainian law regulates the situation of Russian schools, and practically does not affect the Polish minority. “But I understand the situation for Hungarians: they live in the greater area and also more schools where Hungarian is the main language. But honestly, it sounds to me unnatural, because people who live in Ukraine, must understand both languages,” – said Waszczykowski.
