"Many joined the “Letter of the Concerned Ones", in which we ask the guarantor of the Constitution to implement the reform in social and cultural areas. We ask him to support the bill “On the State Foundation for Humanitarian Development of Ukraine”, as it will become an essential step in reforming the country’s humanitarian area. It will become an impetus for development of culture, science, sport, social area and tourism", - authors of the petition said.
74 artists signed the petition, among them singer Ruslana Lyzhycko, poet Ivan Drach, writers Serhiy Zhadan and Yuriy Andrukhovych, and many others.
The activists also urged all concerned citizens to join the collective petition.
"There are dozens of the most influential people of the Ukrainian culture, many concerned people among those who signed the petition. We need to act as time passes by quickly. While most politicians simulate rotation in the government and distract the nation with smooth talk, the country is on the edge of the humanitarian disaster. We urge everyone to join this initiative”, reads the petition.
