The Dutch universities are shocked by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and sympathise with everyone affected by this. It is terrible what is happening there and we are very concerned about the consequences it has for Ukrainian universities and the academic community.
We stand in solidarity with students and staff in Ukraine and we embrace the academic communities in Russia who are speaking out against the invasion and who continue to courageously work for peace, dialogue and open cooperation.
The Dutch universities are committed to supporting students and staff who are directly or indirectly affected by this. We see that there is uncertainty among Ukrainian and Russian staff and students in the Netherlands. We are doing our utmost to help them as best we can. In addition, the universities will look into the possibilities of offering assistance to academics in Ukraine. It is our responsibility as universities to contribute to a better world through research and education and to work for peace, respect and (academic) freedom.
