As an academic community, Heidelberg University stands at the side of the people in Ukraine and of its Ukrainian partners in research, teaching and student affairs. Ruperto Carola condemns all forms of violation of international law, aggression and armed conflict as they find expression in the attack on Ukraine.

Accordingly, Heidelberg University stands by all those calling for an immediate end to this invasion of Ukraine.
