The signboards with inscriptions ‘Exit to City’ and ‘to Trains’ in Russian were installed on the railway station building in Simferopol.

Meanwhile, there are no similar signboards with inscriptions in Ukrainian and Crimea Tatar language, which, according to the Constitution of Crimea, are declared as official languages along with Russian.

It should be noted that a signboard with the inscription ‘to Trains’ in Ukrainian was taken down from the façade of the railway station in April, last year.

As a reminder: On April 11, 2014, the State Council of Crimea adopted the Constitution of Crimea stipulating that three languages – Russian, Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar – have the official state language status in Crimea (Article No. 10).
