Krzysztof Stshakovsky, the Burgomaster of Wola district of Warsaw came up with an initiative to add the Ukrainian language to the ticket machines. He noted that tens of thousands citizens of Ukraine live in Warsaw; they study, work and pay taxes in the city.
“Such a decision will facilitate the lives of the citizens of Ukraine and will show that Warsaw is the open city, which takes care of the comfort of all citizens,” Stshakovsky said.
“We are preparing the interface, program commands in Ukrainian, which we will pass to the operator of a ticket machine with a request to add them,” Tomash Kunert, the representative of City Transport Department said.
It is planned that the Ukrainian language will be added to the machines until the end of February. Now, they can serve people in Polish, English, German and Russian languages.
Earlier the Ukrainian language was imposed at the ticket machines for public transport in Poznan and Lodz.
As we reported the Hungarian government will open the free Ukrainian language courses for the ethnic Hungarians living in Zakarpattya. The classes are supposed to begin in early 2019.
