Russia's military invasion of Ukraine (President's message)
The military invasion of Ukraine by the Russian army from February 24, 2022, is an attempt to make a one-sided change in the status quo by force, and it can be said that it violates the sovereignty and territorial protection of Ukraine. We can never forgive such an act. On behalf of Shizuoka University, I urge the immediate suspension of the Russian invasion and the peaceful resolution of the conflict.
Shizuoka University will continue to do its utmost to support the people concerned. In the hope of peace as soon as possible in Ukraine, we will illuminate blue and yellow lights at the Hamamatsu campus.
March 7, 2022 HIZUME Kazuyuki, President of Shizuoka University
