I hope we will take extra care of each other in these troubled times and be resolute together, writes Annika Olsson, Dean of LTH, in a message to students and staff affected by the attack on Ukraine.

Since the early morning of 24 February 2022, we have been in shock over the Russian government's decision to invade Ukraine. This day now marks a sad day in history – with an extended war in Europe and a violent attack on a democracy which should have been unthinkable. This act will now lead to great suffering and incalculable consequences.

As Dean of LTH, I would like to express my dismay at what is happening, and I would like to send a special message to students and staff affected by the attack on Ukraine.

I hope we can help and care for each other in these troubled times, and be resolute together.

To our international students who are affected by the war, I would like to remind you of the following available resources:

For LTH employees there is crisis support available through the Occupational Health Service, for example for those whose relatives are affected by the war.

Take good care of yourselves.

Annika Olsson

Dean of LTH
