Unable to fix 'original title' for tt10097664

As usual, IMDb database stuff rejects correct submissions on the topic of Ukrainian movies for no apparent reason => #200322-025758-696000

When will IMBd hire a staff that will be responsible for Ukrainian movies so this doesn't keep happening on a massive scale? If you guys don't know any Ukrainian film professionals with good English knowledge - PM, I can help.

This time it's tt10097664 / Mamo, ya lyotchyka lyublyu https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10097664/ . It's a Ukrainian-language movie and thus the title should be based on the Ukrainian-langauge title MamO, ya lyotchYka lyublyu and not on the Russian-langauge title MamA, ya lyotchIka lyublyu.

Original Ukrainian-langauge title can be found in film credits (film can be viewed on divan.tv: https://divan.tv/uk/video/mamo-ya-lotchika-lyublyu-27384 ). Alternative film transliteration in English (e.g., Molodist IFF uses Ukrainian CMU version of UA->EN transliteration Mamo, ya liotchyka liubliu!, rather than American BGN version of UA-EN transliteration Mamo, ya lyotchyka lyublyu) can also be found on Molodist Kyiv International Film Festival website http://web.archive.org/web/20121027211908/http://www.molodist.com/program_catalogue/cat/382 (film participated in Molodist in 2012). Both CMU and BGN versions of transliteration are available at https://slovnyk.ua/translit.php (but one has to modify BGN version, since it uses apostrophes (') to transliteration Ukrainian word ь (that softens the previous letter), yet IMDb discourages the use of a apostrophes (') when transliterationg non-English title films with Cyryllic-based alphabet titles (IMDb, unfortuantely, doens't have a seperate 'Ukrainian names & titles' guide, however letter ь exists in both Ukrainian Cyrillic alphabet and Russian Cyrillic alphabet, so the IMDb' Russian names & titles' guidelines to NOT use anything for the Russian Cyrillic alphabet letter ь would equallly apply to Ukrainian Cyrillic alphabet letter ь)

Rejected submission #200322-025758-696000
