Hungary has initiated the adoption of a Council of Europe resolution concerning minority affairs in Ukraine, a ruling Fidesz lawmaker said on Wednesday.

Hungary wants the CoE to prepare a report and its Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) to approve a resolution on legal violations suffered by the ethnic Hungarian minority in Ukraine, Pál Barna Zsigmond said.

The resolution should state that new Ukrainian regulations affecting education contravene international laws that Ukraine earlier signed up to, he said.
