Statement of the Faculty of Science of Charles University on the situation in Ukraine
“As rector, together with the management of Charles University, I strongly condemn any form of aggression, not least the hostilities being conducted by Putin's Russia right now. This is an extremely dangerous move that threatens the lives of people across Europe - including those of fellow colleagues and students. It is a step in the wrong direction, taking the world backwards!
Such aggression shows how important it is to study, to think critically, to value education, to understand history and the complex world today. I call on academics, not only at our university, to strongly support a free and democratic society and to say a clear ‘No!’ to war.”
