The UCLA Department of Slavic, East European & Eurasian Languages & Cultures represents a diverse community of scholars and students dedicated to studying, researching and communicating the intellectual and cultural riches of this geocultural area. As such, we condemn the unprovoked and unjustified February 2022 assault on Ukraine by Russian Federation troops in contravention of European and international law. We stand in solidarity with all those who oppose this military action and offer our sympathy and support to our relatives, friends, colleagues, former or current students and acquaintances who find themselves or their loved ones in harm’s way. May the forces of peace prevail!!!
