Purposeful destruction of the Ukrainian language (linguocide) as a defining feature of the Ukrainian nation by Russia for many centuries is an indisputable historical fact and recognized by the decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine of 14.07.2021 № 1-r / 2021 (link)
Linguocide is a constituent part of the policy of genocide against Ukrainians in the temporarily occupied territories. Ukrainian language as an important factor of national identity and state formation is one of Russia's main goals in the war against Ukraine.
Eventual cases of linguocide are as follows:
Acts of linguocide of the Ukrainian language are always accompanied by threats, intimidation, use of physical force, psychological pressure, restraint of liberty, abduction, torture, murder and other crimes against Ukrainians. Illegal acts and documents containing evidence of linguocide may be issued and distributed on behalf of the occupation administrations.
All crimes of the occupiers, including crimes related to linguocide, must be duly recorded, investigated and brought to justice. The perpetrators must be identified and punished.
For that purpose, please report about the acts of linguocide against the Ukrainian language (any actions of the occupiers or their collaborators aimed at discrimination or repression against Ukrainians on the basis of language, forcible expulsion of the Ukrainian language from public space and public use, replacing it with Russian)

Detailed documentation of acts of linguocide of the Ukrainian language will be important for the arrangement of legal prosecution of criminals and bringing them to justice.
In this regard, please provide a complete description of the facts (date, time, place, circumstances) and, when possible, information about yourself, about witnesses who could confirm these facts, information about persons involved in the implementation linguocide, evidence (photos, videos, links to resources posted on the Internet etc.), other information that will help to obtain confirmation of acts of linguocide.
