The Executive Committee and Advisory Board of the Polish Cognitive Linguistics Association express their full solidarity with Ukraine, which has become the target of unprovoked military aggression. Following the statement of the Polish Ministry of Education and Science, issued on March 1st, 2022, Poland is putting on hold all scientific cooperation with Russian and Belorusian scholars and scientific institutions. As a consequence, PCLA suspends all cooperation with scientists affiliated with Russian and Belorusian scientific institutions.
