The update green-lighted by the Goverment in its Wednesday meeting, requires people seeking civil sector jobs to submit an official certificate on Ukrainian language fluency.  The earlier wording of the job policy required no official documents confirming the state language proficiency.

The law update makes applicants failing to submit such document not eligible for civil sector vacancies.

The law update made effective on July 16 assumes public examination involving Ukrainian language tests for applicants seeking positions  in state and local government offices.

The law update rules job applicants failing to submit such document ineligable for such positions.
