City's response to the conflict
City’s President, Professor Sir Anthony Finkelstein, released a statement:
“There are occasions when the run of everyday concerns are jolted by the realisation that we 'live in history'. Violence, autocracy and untruthfulness confront the international order, democracy and the rule of law. It is profoundly distressing.
"Our first thoughts are with the people of Ukraine, and with all our staff and students affected by the conflict, we will obviously do all we can to support them.”
You can read the full statement here.
Our Chaplaincy team said: "We are committed to supporting students and staff from both Ukraine and Russia, who will be affected by these events albeit in different ways, as well as our wider City community who may be affected.
If you would like to speak to someone about how the events are affecting you, then members of the chaplaincy team would be pleased to meet with you. Contact us via our web pages: www.city.ac.uk/faith or via Instagram @cityunichaplaincy"
