To our UBC Community,
The AMS is unsettled and appalled by Russia’s unprovoked and unjust invasion of Ukraine. We strongly condemn the actions of the Russian military and call upon political leaders here in Canada, and around the world, to ensure Russia is held accountable. We join local, provincial, federal and international leaders in calling for an immediate withdrawal by Russia and a de-escalation of tensions in the region.
This troubling, chilling invasion may have a profound impact on many in our UBC student community. As a student of Ukrainian descent myself, I understand how difficult, saddening, and frightening the news of this invasion can be. If you or someone you know needs help or support, there is always someone to talk to. These resources are available to help no matter how much support you need:
As is always the case with events like these, it is important that we take care of each other. You are never alone, and there is a whole community of over 60,000 strong to support you. The AMS stands in solidarity with Ukrainians both here in Canada and abroad.
