It is more than a month since Russia started its invasion of Ukraine by Russia. In that time, CUUS has held vigils, protests in King’s Parade and thas ried to help establish links between the university, donors and Ukraine.

It has also set up a Cambridge4Ukraine volunteer initiative that helps refugees to find hosts in the UK via the Homes For Ukraine scheme.

Olenka Dmytryk, a PhD student at Trinity Hall and vice president of CUUS, says there are many ways to help the people of Ukraine.

She says: “The quickest way is to donate – we have direct links for donations to Ukraine on our blog.

“However, there are so many more ways to help, from asking your MP for more support to Ukraine, to organising your own fundraisers and charity events, hosting refugees, and sharing information about Ukraine on social media (to oppose the Russian information war). I would say, just think of what skills and resources you have, and use them to bring peace to Ukraine and to Europe.”

The Cambridge4Ukraine website will go live soon and more details are currently on the CUUS Facebook page at facebook.com/CUUAsoc.
