At the end of the XX – beginning of the XXI century human community faced the question of “communicative” co-existence of different nations, speakers of different languages, challenges of contemporary world, who have to understand the ideas of each other and to respect national identity. The language or the “mother tongue” is the embodiment of all nation’s cultural achievements, it is unique and ethnically peculiar. Each multinational and multilingual state inevitably faces the problem of language policy regulation. Contemporary period is characterized by emergence of a row of suprastate institutions, such as European Union (which Ukraine aims to integrate persistently), Commonwealth of Independent States (where Ukraine is an active member currently). The successful functioning of the institutions of the kind is in a way dependent upon the language policy implemented on their territory.
