Last night, the Russian Federation launched an attack on sovereign Ukraine by moving regular army into its territory.
Bombs and rockets are dropped on military infrastructure, the civilian population is suffering as well. We are an institution of culture and we cannot be indifferent to a brutal violation of basic human rights and an assault on the independent country of our neighbours.
In the face of Russian aggression, we are expressing support and full solidarity with our Ukrainian friends and partners. We are showing it on our social media and in the building. We also invite Ukrainian citizens to visit Copernicus for free.
