Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University Community’s Address about the Russian Military Invasion into Ukrain

Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University Community’s Address about the Russian Military Invasion into Ukraine To the International Academic Community!

The University Community is appealing to all universities to urge their statesmen and governments and cut all cooperation with Russia: 

 - Amend the UN Charter to remove the aggressor from the Security Council!

 - Close the sky over Ukraine!

 - Prohibit the entry of aggressor’s seagoing vessels to the seaports!

 - Terminate flights with Russia!

Russia has massively been bombarding Ukraine all days long, both military units and ordinary citizens, killing the elderly, the children – all of us, disregarding all laws, manners, or conventions. Help to stop criminal acts against peaceful European country! If we join forces against the enemy, we will win! We believe in your effective support and solidarity!


Звернення громади Київського університету імені Бориса Грінченка про російське Військове вторгнення в Україну Міжнародній академічній спільноті!

Університетська спільнота звертається до всіх університетів із закликом своїх державних діячів та урядів скоротити всю співпрацю з Росією:

 - Змінити Статут ООН, щоб вивести агресора з Ради Безпеки!

 - Закрити небо над Україною!

 - Заборонити в'їзд морських суден агресора до морських портів!

 - Припинити рейси з Росією!

Росія цілими днями масово обстрілює Україну, як військові одиниці так і звичайних громадян, вбивають літніх людей, дітей - всіх нас, зневажаючи всі закони, манери або конвенції. Допоможіть зупинити злочинні дії проти мирної європейської країни! Якщо ми об'єднаємо сили проти ворога, ми переможемо! Віримо у вашу ефективну підтримку та солідарність!

Звернення / Address

in French

Nous, les Ukrainiens, nous adressons ce message au monde entier !
L’Ukraine souffre de la guerre avec la Russie depuis 8 ans !
En 2014 l’agresseur a annexé la Crimée.
Actuellement il a envahi une partie de la région de Donetsk et de Lougansk en menaçant sans vergogne de s’emparer de toute l’Ukraine.
Nous faisons de grands sacrifices en défendant notre liberté, notre droit de vivre et notre libre choix !
Nous défendons les valeurs du monde civilisé !
Nous sommes très resonnaissants pour le soutien de l’Ukraine !
Tous ont reconnu l’impossibilité d’arreter l’agresseur par la voie de la diplomatie !
Maintenant nous devons unir nos efforts pour défendre toute parcelle de notre territoire.

Le monde entier a entendu des mensonges et l’histoire déformée par le Kremlin !
Nous ne permettrons pas la destruction de notre Etat et de notre avenir parce que sur la terre de nos ancêtres nous défendons notre droit essentiel à la vie et à la liberté !

Nous sommes forts ensemble !
Ensemble nous sommes invincibles !

in Spanish

¡En nombre de los ciudadanos de Ucrania, nos dirigimos a todo el mundo!

¡Ucrania lleva 8 años sufriendo la agresión rusa! En 2014 Rusia se anexionó Crimea. También ha ocupado parte de las provincias de Donetsk y Lugansk y ahora está amenazando descaradamente con invadir toda Ucrania.

¡Estamos luchando con abnegación por nuestra libertad, por el derecho a vivir y a elegir! ¡Estamos defendiendo los valores del mundo civilizado!

Estamos muy agradecidos por vuestro apoyo a Ucrania. Todos hemos visto como el intento de parar al agresor por vía diplomática ha fracasado. ¡Aun a costa de un gran sacrificio, debemos luchar por cada pedazo de nuestra tierra!

¡El mundo entero se ha dado cuenta de las mentiras y la realidad distorsionada impuesta por el Kremlin! ¡No permitiremos que aniquilen nuestro país y nuestro futuro! ¡En la tierra de nuestros antepasados estamos defendiendo el derecho natural a la vida y a la libertad!

¡En la unión está nuestra fuerza!
¡Solo unidos somos invencibles!

in English

We, the Ukrainian citizens, address the world community!

For eight years we have been resisting the war with Russia. In 2014 the aggressor occupied the Crimea. Then they invaded the eastern parts of Luhansk and Donetsk regions, threatening openly to invade the whole country.

We have been standing firm for our right to life, our liberty, our choices.
We are defending the values of the civilized world!
We are grateful to all who support Ukraine. It is obvious that diplomatic negotiations do not stop the aggression. Now we have to stand for every inch of our soil with all our might!

The world has seen how hypocritically the Kremlin is lying about us and our history. Still, we will stop them from destroying our state and our future! We are on our own land, and defend our right to live in freedom!

United we stand!
Together we win.

in German

Wir, die Bürger der Ukraine, wenden uns an die ganze Welt!

Seit 8 Jahren befindet sich die Ukraine im Kriegszustand mit Russland! Im Jahre 2014 hat der Aggressor die Krym okkupiert. Jetzt hat er einige Bezirke der Donezker und Luhansker Regionen anexiert. Die ganze Ukraine wird auch von der Besetzung schamlos bedroht.

Wir setzen uns aufopferungsvoll für unsere Freiheit, für unser Recht auf das Leben und die Wahl ein! Wir verteidigen die Werte der zivilisierten Welt.

Wir bedanken uns für die Unterstützung der Ukraine. Alle haben anerkannt, dass es jedoch unmöglich ist, den Aggressor nur durch die Diplomatie aufzuhalten. Jetzt müssen wir mit umfangreichen Bemühungen um jedes Stück unseres Landes kämpfen.

Die ganze Welt hat sich von der Lüge von Kreml und der Geschichtsklitterung überzeugt! Wir gestatten dem Aggressor nie, unseren Staat und unsere Zukunft zu vernichten. Wir sind im Land unserer Vorfahren und setzen uns für natürliches Recht auf das Leben und die Freiheit ein.

Zusammen sind wir stärker!
Zusammen sind wir unbesiegbar!

ウクライナは8年間ロシアとの戦争に苦しんでいます! 2014年、侵略者はクリミアを占領しました。今日、彼らはドネツクとルハンシク地域の特定の地区を併合し、恥知らずにウクライナ全土を占領しようと脅迫しています。
