Statement by the academic community in connection with Russia’s aggression against Ukraine
In connection with Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine and the brutal breach of international agreements and standards in force in the civilized world, the Polish academic community strongly condemns the attack on our neighbor and the use of violence against him.
We express our full solidarity with the entire Ukrainian nation and support for Ukraine as a sovereign state, and declare all possible help in these difficult times. At the same time, we appeal to the authorities of the Ministry of Education and Science to launch, in cooperation with the National Agency for Academic Exchange, special measures, including legal ones, to support Ukrainian scientists, doctoral students and students who wish to continue their activities at Polish universities.
The Polish academic community will further intensify and develop all forms of cooperation with our Ukrainian academic partners. Full text of the statement.
