Romania and Hungary blast Ukraine over minority education law

Bucharest (dpa) - Romanian President Klaus Iohannis cancelled a visit to Kiev over Ukraine‘s decision to alter education rules for minorities, the Mediafax news agency reported Friday.

Iohannis personally told Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York that that he has scrapped the official visit scheduled for October.

The move comes after Ukraine‘s parliament recently passed a law limiting teaching in minority languages.

Hungary‘s government was also angered by the education law, with Prime Minister Viktor Orban saying that "withdrawing existing minority rights is not usual in European culture" and that it drives Ukraine further from EU membership.

Some 400,000 ethnic Romanians and 140,000 Hungarians are affected by the new law, as their children will have only Ukrainian language in class after fifth grade. 

The parliaments in both countries have already condemned Ukraine for it.

Ukraine‘s law is seen as an effort to reduce the influence of Moscow, with which Kiev is fighting over Crimea. Around 8 million Russians, making up some 17 per cent of the population, are the largest minority in Ukraine.
