WU condemns war in Ukraine


WU is a cosmopolitan university whose self-image includes internationality. It is a place of global exchange and a place where lecturers and students work together.

We are bewildered by the shocking news about acts of war in Europe. We condemn these military attacks in the strongest possible terms.

With WU faculty and staff who are now directly affected by the war, we try to maintain close communication and do everything in our power to support them.

Our thoughts are with all those affected.

WU also supports the open letter by Russian researchers protesting Russia‘s invasion of Ukraine. The researchers show impressive courage by publicly speaking out for peace – regardless of the possible consequences. To the open letter (in Russian).
