"For the sake of de-escalation of tension in some regions, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine [Parliament,-ed.] calls on all citizens to lend a hand to each other, abandon radical actions, hatred, return together to joint work to protect, promote and build a democratic, sovereign and united Ukraine, where people of all nationalities, political opinion and faiths will be living freely and friendly," the document says.
Parliament also declared support to the national dialogue in the framework of the national unity roundtable.
Regarding the state language, MPs have declared this as follows: "Next to the constitutional status of Ukrainian as the state language the Verkhovna Rada guarantees the status of the Russian language.
