The CSAA understands the invasion of Ukraine as an act of aggression and a war not only against Ukraine, but against the world and the basic principles of democracy and freedom. Such an aggression and violence cannot be tolerated since conflicts should be solved diplomatically and without violence.

The CSAA denounces the Russian invasion of Ukraine and attempts of the Russian government to justify their acts of destruction and aggression by fake news, misinformation, and lies. CSAA appeals to the Russian government to respect basic human rights, academic freedoms and academic duties, among which are freedom of speech and the duty to reveal and share the facts, truth and knowledge.
