SOAS statement on the situation in Ukraine

28 February 2022

The recent invasion of Ukraine has sparked outrage and concern across the world. At SOAS we are deeply concerned by the ongoing situation unfolding and understand this will be very distressing for our students, staff and alumni.

We are reaching out to those in our community who are directly impacted by recent events to offer our support and we are closely monitoring the situation. We recommend that you follow FCDO advice, which currently advises against all travel to Ukraine and all but essential travel to some regions of Russia.

For those members of the SOAS community who are feeling distressed please speak to your line manager or access our staff support services; for students please do contact our wellbeing services on .

Our thoughts are with everyone affected at this difficult time.
