UHEC statement on Russia’s war against Ukraine

February 24, 2022
Stand with Ukraine

The Ukrainian History and Education Center condemns Russia’s unprovoked, unjustified, and unlawful war against Ukraine. It is a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Our hearts and prayers are with the people in Ukraine in these trying days, particularly with our museum and archives colleagues, the in-person and remote researchers whom we have assisted, and the artists and other professionals who have taken part in our events. Many of these individuals reside very close to the current war zones.

It is disheartening that this attack has been accompanied by a Russian disinformation campaign and severe restrictions on access to information within Russia. Particularly disturbing are the gross misreadings of history that appear to be informing the current leadership of the Russian Federation. This underscores all the more the need for a wider and deeper understanding of Ukrainian history and culture, which the UHEC have been working to facilitate in our small way over the years.

Stand with Ukraine!

Pray for Ukraine!
