Kyushu University condemns the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops starting on February 24, 2022. Such an attempt to change the state of affairs in another country by means of military force is unacceptable both under international law and from a humanitarian standpoint. We call for an immediate ceasefire and hope for a resolution through peaceful means.
During this difficult time, we will continue to support our students, staff, and researchers affected by this turn of events, and do all we can to prevent disruptions to their academic life.
