Information from EUAS regarding the war in Ukraine
EUAS has initiated a series of activities to help Ukrainians. Below you can find more information about it. The information is constantly being updated.
On the morning of February 24, when we celebrated the 104th birthday of the Republic of Estonia, the Russian Federation launched a military offensive against Ukraine. This is not an attack on one country but the whole of Europe and the European values. EUAS expresses in strongest terms the condemnation of Russia’s aggressive war against free and peaceful Ukraine.
We express full support for Ukrainian students and employees by offering study and working opportunities, vocational and in-service training, accommodation, and psychological support as well as publicly condemning the actions of the Russian Federation.
On March 16, EUAS made together with the Estonian Rectors´ Conference of Universities of Applied Sciences (RCUAS) a supportive statement for Ukrainians and condemnation of war.
