About the Russo-Ukrainian war, NOVA University Lisbon has issued the following statement and support to students: «As Russian armed forces are being deployed to carry out acts of aggression in Ukraine, NOVA University wishes to express its condemnation of violence and war. We are committed to the rules and principles set out in the UN Charter, which prohibit the use of force and privilege peaceful settlement of disputes between States. We stand in solidarity with the people affected by the Russo-Ukrainian war, whose lives and human rights are at stake. Our thoughts also go to our Ukrainian and Russian colleagues and students».
