‘It happened on 24 Feb’ – event devoted to two-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

Editors: OO

On two-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Faculty of Humanities (A. Pawlikowski Lecture Hall) organises an event devoted to that issue. Participants of the event will discuss the media image of the war and analyse it in various ways. Its main reason is to remind what is happening behind Poland’s eastern border, once again express firm objection to all warfare actions, and give words of encouragement to our friends, students, and colleagues – all those who are fighting in Ukraine and those who had to leave their loved ones who are still in the country.
