The Short Waves Festival team expresses solidarity with the independent Ukraine. We strongly oppose the invasion that Russia has launched, recognizing the fact that historical, cultural and social integrity of Ukraine is incontestable. We are staggered with the events happening in our neighboring country. We encourage everyone to participate in demonstrations of solidarity and making other, symbolic or material, contributions for the sake of the Ukrainian minority living in Poland. At the same time we also empathize with citizens of Russia that fight against breaking the civil rights in their homeland for decades, distancing themselves from Vladimir Putin’s aggressive policy that undermines the very foundations of democracy.
As a part of the global festival community, we also unite with members of the Ukrainian film industry, who constantly inspire us to act towards upholding the principles of democratic freedom in Europe, using cinema as an impulse for change with courage and dauntlessness.
We are standing by you in this difficult time. #freeUkraine #standwithUkraine
