The University of Helsinki
The University of Helsinki condemns the military action by Russia and expresses its support for Ukraine and its university community.
We, together with all Finnish universities, join in Universities Finland’s expression of support to Ukraine, as well as the European University Association’s Statement to the same. As a demonstration of support, the Main Building of the University and Unioninkatu 35 have been
lit in the colours of the Ukrainian flag.
The University of Helsinki believes in and supports international collaboration in research and higher education, even in difficult circumstances.
However, there are times when collaboration must be reconsidered, and Russia’s condemnable attack in Ukraine warrants exceptional action.
We keep monitoring both national and EU sanctions, and will adjust policies and processes accordingly. We will work together with other
Finnish and international universities in an effort to end hostilities in Ukraine, and to support Ukrainian institutions and individuals.
The University of Helsinki has established a team to monitor the situation in Ukraine, the related sanctions and their impact, to issue
recommendations and coordinate measures taken by the University.
