Assistance to Ukraine and Ukrainian students

Updated. The management of Masaryk University’s (MU) Faculty of Science values solidarity and a willingness to help those in need. For the assistance to be effective and systematic, the faculty, its employees and students are encouraged to coordinate their activities with Masaryk University, humanitarian organisations and the city of Brno, while at the same time trying to help individually according to their own possibilities.
