Support & Aid for Ukraine / for Ukrainian students

We are all appalled by the Russian attack on Ukraine. We are deeply shocked by President Putin's disregard for the most basic principles of international law. War cannot be a solution, especially when it puts millions of lives at risk. Our thoughts today are with the people whose lives are being used as pawns of power.

On this page we collect information on the one hand on how we can best support, and on the other hand also offers of help and support for Ukrainian students.

Open letter from the Russian students of TUM against the war in Ukraine

The following letter was sent to us by Russian students at TUM. We are happy to publish it on our website.

On 24.02.2022 at 4 o'clock in the morning a fratricidal war against Ukraine initiated by Vladimir Putin broke out. This day changed our lives irretrievably. We, the Russian students of TU Munich, would like to take a clear stand on this war.

At this moment our relatives, loved ones and friends in Kiev, Kharkiv, Kherson and other Ukrainian cities are being bombed and murdered. In Moscow, Ekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, as well as everywhere in Russia, at the same time, protesters against the war are brutally beaten and arrested. This brutal action does not even stop at small children. The war between Ukraine and Russia is a treason against civilization. This war leaves deadly wounds; not only in our hearts, but also in the consciousness of both peoples. And for several generations. Forever.

We strongly condemn this war that despises human rights and admire the strength and courage of Ukrainians. We hope to see the day when the war criminals will be sentenced to the full extent of the law. Ukraine, as well as Russia, has fallen victim to the madness of one man. Each additional day of this unlawful war is like a nightmare.

A war is hell on earth. There is no place for love and freedom. Every day we win back a piece of love and light by trying to help: We take care of refugees, collect donations, organize humanitarian aid, inform our fellow citizens about this cruel war and organize protest events.

We do not want war and demand an immediate end to this senseless, destructive violence. We say NO to war!
