"We want to let the Ukrainian people know that we are in solidarity with them," says the chairman of the Czech PEN Club Jiří Dědeček, on behalf of the Executive Committee and also on behalf of all members of the PEN Club.
With great sadness, fear, and compassion, we are watching with the rest of the world how the freedom and integrity of Ukraine are being put to test. Anybody could be in this situation right now: us individually, our family, our country.
The Czech PEN club would like to express its support to all the citizens of Ukraine. We are deeply concerned about the situation in your country. Your future is the future for all of us.
