We at the Trinity Business School condemn Vladimir Putin’s Russian invasion of Ukraine which has caused a catastrophic loss of life and human suffering.

We are gravely concerned about the violation of human rights and atrocities unfolding in Ukraine. We call upon all our community and international academic colleagues - especially in Russia as we know so many oppose this invasion - to use their influence to persuade Vladimir Putin to cease military action, for which there is no justification.

We also call on all our community to support the following humanitarian appeals to help the people of Ukraine:

We recognise that this is an incredibly challenging and uncertain time for Ukrainian and Russian students and staff of the Trinity Business School community. We will endeavour to keep in close contact with all our students and staff who are impacted by this crisis.
