The Russian invasion of Ukraine has triggered international condemnation and what risks to be the worst humanitarian crisis on the European continent in 20 years. The European Students’ Union, together with the Global Student Forum and the Ukrainian Association of Students issued a joint statement condemning the invasion, and many ESU member unions published their statements against the war. The response of the European civil society has been a big mobilisation across the frontiers to provide help and support to people fleeing Ukraine and to those remaining in the country.
This tab serves as a collection of various initiatives and methods of assistance developed for the purpose of assisting Ukrainian students throughout Europe in order to ensure their safety. It can be used by both students studying in Ukraine and those interested in providing assistance from anywhere in the world.
If you have any initiatives that you would like to propose or that you have recently discovered, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our goal is to compile a comprehensive list of potential sources of assistance for our fellows

We recognize the courage shown by those members of Russian civil society who are engaging in protest against the Russian invasion of Ukraine, in spite of great personal risk and ask all members and consultative members of the EHEA to offer support and protection to members of the Russian higher education community taking a public stance against the invasion. Furthermore, we need to recognise that many Belarusian students are de facto living in exile from their country, and with the rapidly deteriorating situation of civil liberties in Russia, this is going to be the case for Russian students in Europe. We ask the Member States and Higher Education institutions to consider the possibility of extending their visas and study periods in Europe.
