"I strongly reject the narrowing of minority rights including the rights of the Hungarian minority in Ukraine. I call on the Hungarian minority and professional organizations in the Transcarpathian region to strongly denounce the abolition of the language law," said István Gajdos member of parliament and the head of the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance of Hungarians.
