Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand Studies Network (ACNZSN) Newsletter – 25/03/22

Dear All,

Since the last ACNZSN Newsletter the world has witnessed the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine by Russia. The past month has seen such awful devastation inflicted upon Ukraine and its people. However, it has also seen incredible bravery, courage, and heroism on the part of the Ukrainian people to resist this wanton aggression by their neighbour, personified by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine himself. We have also seen considerable international support for Ukraine, especially by its neighbours, in particular Poland, to welcome refugees escaping the fighting. ACNZSN stands firmly with the Ukrainian people and truly hopes that they prevail in this struggle for their future.
