HZK stands with Ukraine

The Hermann von Helmholtz Zentrum for Cultural Techniques strongly condemns the military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine. As we, scholars of the cultural, know all too well, military violence always has long-term and far-reaching consequences that affect human lives way beyond the war zone. We stand in solidarity with our colleagues in Ukraine as well as with all the Ukrainian people, and send our support to those affected by the cynical and cruel decisions of the Russian authorities.

There are several ways to help Ukraine, some of them can be found here: https://uacrisis.org/en/help-ukraine
