The Secretariat of the State Language Protection Commissioner continues to receive numerous letters in support of the Ukrainian people from the language institutions of Europe.
The President of the Romanian Academy of Sciences, Academician Ioan-Aurel Pop called on European academies to create a continental platform for scientific communication aimed at defining and protecting the values, principles and aspirations common to all peoples to restore peace.
"After the two world wars turned into humanitarian catastrophes, it is impossible to resolve a new armed conflict with the experience of the recent past. Nicolae Titulescu said: "When peace is threatened, the answer is given not by war, but by organizing peace." The independent state of Ukraine, which borders Romania, is fighting the specter of the death of a great power that has unleashed open aggression in defiance of all international agreements," the statement said.
It is also said that scholars and cultural representatives always open the way for dialogue, regardless of the political values shared by their governments. Science and culture are the bearers of universal languages. Efforts must now be made to end the war and make peace, to build stable bridges of communication between all the nations of Europe.
“We admire the courage of your people in the face of this evil! We try to help you and your citizens all in our power! All our good thoughts are with you! ” - the letter of the Academy reads.
The head of the Lithuanian Language Commission (VLKK), Audrys Antanaitis, noted that the Lithuanian people were shocked by the crime committed by Putin's criminal regime against heroic Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. There is no excuse for the Russian army's crime, just as there is no doubt that Russia, Putin and his inner circle must be held personally accountable for these crimes. Lithuania supports Ukraine unconditionally and actively. We fully understand the meaning of this common struggle. "
Audrys Antanaitis said that the Commission had adopted a resolution to protect Ukrainian geographical names in the Lithuanian language by phonetic transliteration. In addition, it encourages the society to use Ukrainian place names without distorting them, as has been the case in the past.
"These and other names, translated into Lithuanian, remind us of the struggle you are waging. For our and Your freedom!,- Audrys Antanaitis added.
