PREFACE

 

The terms SLAVIC UNION,  SLAVIC CULTURAL INITIATIVE,  SLAVIALAND,  SLAVIC WORLD DIASPORA,  SLAVIC KNIGHT and  SLAVIC APOSTLE have been taken in use by the Founder of the SLAVIC UNION.

 

SLAVIC CULTURAL INITIATIVE cannot be explained in one word, it has many different uses, some of which will be defined in the future.

  

The terms SLAVIA or SLAVIALAND are used for the geographic distribution of the Slavic languages.

 

SLAVIC KNIGHT is a title for different kinds of merit in the SLAVIC CULTURAL INITIATIVE or in the SLAVIC UNION.

 

SLAVIC APOSTLE is a special title for special merit in the SLAVIC UNION.

 

“SLAVIC SPIRIT” and “WIDE SLAVIC SOUL” – this should be the name of the order for nobility, for acknowledging the different kinds of merit in the SLAVIC CULTURAL INITIATIVE or in the SLAVIC UNION.

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                                         STATUTE

 

 

 

1.     The SLAVIC UNION was registered in Helsinki, on the 19th of December 2004, as the association Slavic Union ry.

 

                  According to the idea of the Founder, the SLAVIC UNION should become the international organization of the Slavic speaking countries

                  and the community of  Slavic speaking peoples.

 

                  SLAVIC UNION should function on the same principles as the already existing large international language organizations, such as:

                  Francophonic - OIF (Organisation International de la Francophonie, International Organization of the Francophonie)

                  Portuges - CPLP (Comunidade dos Países de Língua Portuguesa, Community of Portuguese Language Countries)

                  LATIN UNION - (International organization of nations that use Romance languages). 

 

 

2.        The motto of the SLAVIC UNION is LOVE PEACE & FREEDOM

 

 

 

3.      The goal of the SLAVIC UNION is the democratic consolidation of the peoples, groups and individuals who have Slavic languages as their mother tongue, as well as people near to the Slavic culture. At the same time the Slavic Union should build cultural bridges between Slavic and other European and world cultures.

 

     

4.      Some of the priorities in the activities of the Slavic Union are: drawing more attention to the Slavic minorities and those Slavic languages or dialects that are   not so widely distributed, consolidation of the  SLAVIC WORLD DIASPORA,  making all the Slavic languages more known to the Slavs themselves and to other language groups in the world.

 

 

5.      Slavic identity or just SLAVENISM is a relatively unusual and abstract notion, and it is something that the SLAVIC UNION

   should bring to the attention of the Slavs, the other peoples in Europe and the whole world.

 

 

              6.            The main language of communication in the SLAVIC UNION is the English language being the most known language in international communications,

                      at least  before we learn to communicate between ourselves in our own Slavic languages.

 

 

7.    The SLAVIC UNION is free, multicultural, multiethnic and open to everyone.

   Exceptions exist only with persons, groups and organizations near to any kind of extremist radical ideas or activities.

                        Membership in Slavic Union is also free, but members are encouraged to make monetary donations on the bank accounts

                        of the SLAVIC UNION for support    

 

 

 

8.        SLAVIC CULTURAL FOND is an international fond where the members of the Slavic Union, groups of people, organizations and anyone interested can make donations to support the cultural movements and other activities of the SLAVIC UNION. The fond can be used for different uses in the future, such as charity work and humanitarian aid.

 

 

 

 9.     Solidarity and Voluntary Work should become one of the symbols and characteristics in all Slavic Union activities in the beginning and in the future.

The Head Chairman names the Vice Chairman and the Secretary of the Slavic Union Headquarters or presents these posts up for election at a meeting where the decision is made by majority vote. Committee meetings can be held when needed. The Founder of the Slavic Union is also the first Head Chairman of the Slavic Union. That post will be open for election in the future.

 

2.            The SLAVIC UNION hopes to open filial associations (branch associations) around the world.  The filial office consists of the Chairman, the Vice Chairman, the Secretary/Treasurer and 2 members. The rules of the filial associations will be the same as the rules of the Headquarters. The meetings can be held in the main language of the country where the filial association exists, but at the same time it is advisable to use English.

 

3.            The Head Chairman names the chairmen of the filial associations, who are responsible to the Head Chairman of the SLAVIC UNION, or the filial members elect the chairmen by majority vote. The chairman of a filial association names his office members or they are elected at a meeting by majority vote.

Present at meetings should be the Chairman or the Vice Chairman and the Secretary and at least 2 ordinary members. Matters are decided by majority vote at the meetings. When votes go even, the Head Chairman  / Chairman has the deciding vote.

Furthermore, the Head Chairman must at least understand well and at least simply speak all the other Slavic languages and Slavic dialects, and he must have wide and deep knowledge about the culture and mentality of the Slavic peoples and SLAVIC WORLD DIASPORA.

 

7.           The main mission of the Head Chairman is to try to unite and consolidate people who speak Slavic languages and Slavic cultural organisations in one union, which should become exactly our SLAVIC UNION, respecting the democratic value of today. 

 

8.            The Vice Chairman of the SLAVIC UNION Headquarters should be a person who speaks fluently at least two Slavic languages, English or any other major language.
