Verkhovna Rada Chairperson Andriy Parubii announced this at a plenary session meeting.

"During the next plenary session we will urgently consider all these orders; I will urgently sign the law on the language; urgently, we have the agreement, President Poroshenko will sign the law," Parubii said.

He explained why he is not going to do it earlier.

"Four regulations on the abolishment of the law on the Ukrainian language were received; and I want to report that there are two days, according to the rules of the Verkhovna Rada, to submit such regulations. The issue is that there is no difficulties for the Verkhovna Rada to abolish these regulations but if we abolish them earlier that after two days and the law will be signed earlier than in two days, then it can doubt the legitimacy of the law," Parubii said.

He warned against the violation of the regulation norms, as it will allow the MPs to appeal to the Constitution court and argue the legitimacy of the law on the language.

"But we should not provide any chance, I emphasize, any change to allow the Constitution court to doubt the law on the Ukrainian language," he added.

April 25, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has adopted the draft law #5670-d on the provision of the functioning of the Ukrainian language as the state one on the second reading and in general.
