“Not only mother can wash the frame,” the minister said. At the same time, he clarified that his department did not set the task of replacing “mom” and “dad” with “parent 1” and “parent 2” or about gay marriage.

Speaking about his personal position on tolerizing attitudes towards LGBT people in textbooks and in the school curriculum, Shkarlet said that he considers himself a tolerant and tolerant person, but this issue is “difficult” for him.

The Biarritz Partnership in Ukraine is supervised by the President’s wife Vladimir Zelensky Elena.
