President asks PM to guarantee Ukrainian dub of foreign movies

Victor Yushchenko has sent a letter to Prime Minister Viktor
Yanukovych with a request to take measures to dub or subtitle foreign films for
Ukrainian-speaking audiences, president’s press office reported.

“To promote the national language in Ukraine’s social life and
to implement balanced language policies, I would like to ask you to take
measures to bring the current procedures of distribution and demonstration of
foreign films in Ukraine in line with the Law on Cinematography,” he said.

The President is worried the Kyiv Economic Court of Appeal
cancelled paragraphs 2, 3 and 12 of item 2 of the January 16/2006 governmental
resolution ensuring that the Law on Cinematography is observed. He believes the
decision violates the rights of Ukrainian-speaking audiences.
