Taras Shevchenko National University Needs Help
Dear colleagues, partners and all people concerned,
Russia terrorist country keeps launching massive bombing attacks at civil, infrastructural and cultural objects falsely claiming them to be the military ones. These attacks aim to sow fear, destruct our nation’s cultural and genetic connections and derail the development of education and culture.
On 31 December 2022, New Year’s Eve, the buildings of the Exhibition Campus of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv were damaged by a missile attack.
The significant damage was made to the buildings of the Institute of Biology and Medicine Scientific and Educational Center, Scientific and Educational Institute of High Technologies, Faculties of Psychology, Sociology, Computer Sciences and Cybernetics, Radiophysics, Electronics and Computer Systems, Mechanics and Mathematics, Geography, as well as laboratory building, Department of Nuclear Physics, cryogenic complex of the Faculty of Physics, sports facilities, Ukrainian Physics and Mathematics Lyceum and some students’ residence halls.
This time the losses caused by the missile are several times as high as the losses the University suffered during the massive missile attack of Kyiv on 10 October 2022 when damage was made to the Red (Main) Building of Taras Shevchenko National University, Yellow Building of the Scientific and Educational Institute of Philology, buildings of M. Maksymovych Scientific Library, the Chemistry Faculty and the conservatory of O. Fomin Botanical Garden.
Today, on 1 January 2023, Shevchenko University family gathered to begin clearing up premises and territory as soon as possible, remove broken glass and cover blown-out windows with a sheeting and plywood to save the premises and laboratory equipment from cold and precipitations. That is the first thing to do, but the full renovation will require significant efforts and financial resources.
Hence, we appeal again to all our partners and people concerned asking to support Taras Shevchenko University in this difficult time.
We thank everyone who has already made contribution to renovate the buildings damaged in October. Thanks to the support of the Ukrainian government, our partners from Turkey, Japan, South Korea and people concerned in Ukraine as well as from all over the world, the University already has new windows in the Red and Yellow Buildings and M. Maksymovych Scientific Library.
Everyone able to take part in renovating the buildings at the Exhibition Campus may make a charitable contribution.
When making a donation, please specify the payment purpose as charitable aid for renovating the buildings suffered from a missile attack.
