Members of the delegation talked about their activities to create all the conditions to ensure the right of Ukrainians in Romania to receive education in their native language and to maintain traditions and cultural values because the Ukrainian community ranks third among the national minorities of Romania.
As the President of the Union of the Ukrainians in Romania, Nicolae Miroslav Petrețchi noted, there is a lack of scientific and pedagogical workers for the implementation of educational programs who will be able to provide high-quality teaching of disciplines in the Ukrainian language, and he also expressed interest in holding work meetings, conferences, seminars, consultations and providing practical assistance.
