At the start, Prof. Geraskov explained the impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, such as the number of refugees within the country. He stated that the effects of the invasion are not limited to Ukraine, but are raising questions about nationalism, the conflict between democracy and tyranny, human rights, and the international order. Next, he introduced the Ukrainian people’s awareness regarding the conflict. Using objective data, he talked about the high percentage of people who support President Volodymyr Zelensky and the Ukrainian government, and about being able to interpret that as the cohesiveness of the Ukrainian people.Finally, he spoke about the impact of the war on education; how classes were temporarily suspended, and the state of educational facilities that were being destroyed. Although universities are gradually resuming online classes, the state of affairs remains uncertain. “The war is having a direct impact on educational activities. In order to promote education, even in wartime, it is desirable for policies to be devised at the national level,” he stated.
