When I saw the image above in a photoessay about the Ukraine, I was immediately reminded of this comment by Bill Bryson, in his book The Mother Tongue; English and how it got that way -
“In Yugoslavia they speak five languages. In not one of them does the word stop exist, yet every stop sign in the country says just that.” (p. 179)I wonder if other countries also use the word "Stop" on signs, but not in the native language.
Addendum: Andrew and Fletcher indicate Portugal and Spain use the word "Stop" on their signs. And ch.zimmerman found a Wikipedia page on this topic - with interesting photos of Stop signs in many countries.
