Our heart is with the people of Ukraine

As we're watching these terrible events unfold, we hold the people of Ukraine in our hearts and minds. We're also thinking about all the Ukrainian students here in Leeds and across the UK for whom this must be heart-wrenching to witness from afar. Millions of people's lives are about to be unjustly made unbearable, and many will be lost. Culture, history, and art will be erased.

As we're watching these terrible events unfold, we hold the people of Ukraine in our hearts and minds. We're also thinking about all the Ukrainian students here in Leeds and across the UK for whom this must be heart-wrenching to witness from afar. Millions of people's lives are about to be unjustly made unbearable, and many will be lost. Culture, history, and art will be erased. War is suffering, suffering we should all collectively fight to eradicate, in Europe, but also everywhere else in the world where violence prevails, and conflicts are still ongoing.

We also want to remind you to look after yourself. It can be overwhelming to take in all of the injustices of this moment, we recommend that you don't flood your nervous systems with distressing content and information all day. You may consider educating yourself with credible sources and staying informed but remember that our minds are not used to absorb so much upsetting news. If you feel like you need support, have a look at the Student Minds' website at www.studentminds.org.uk

We stand by the people of Ukraine.
