Józef Rybak: The case of bilingual street names has been raised because of the approaching elections.

‘This topic is going to be raised perpetually’, says Józef Rybak, an administrative director of the Šalčininkai (in Polish: Soleczniki) region, about the problem of bilingual street names.

The guest of today’s audition called ‘Salon Polityczny’ in the radio ‘Znad Willi’ claims that the case of bilingual street names has been raised again because of the approaching elections.

The administrative director of the Šalčininkai region adds that totally there are 16 street names which have not been written in Lithuanian so far. ‘Even road workers are not sure where these street names should be placed’, states Józef Rybak.

The representative of the Lithuanian government in the Vilnius Region, Audrius Skaistys, brought this case to the Vilnius Regional Administrative Court.
