Dear colleagues,
The Trade Union of Education and Science Workers of Ukraine on behalf of all Ukrainian
educators extends warm greetings and strong solidarity message to you.
Unfortunately, there is a war in our country, the war cynically waged by the russian federation
against Ukraine, against humanity, against the right of Ukrainians to be free and independent.
Consequences of this war are affecting and creating challenges for the workers in the whole
We are resisting, and today in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine there are thousands of our members, who are defending peace and protecting the Ukrainian land and their families.
They are fighting not only for Ukraine, they are fighting for the democracy and peace in Europe and in the whole world as well.
We are sincerely grateful to all of you for your support of Ukraine and for your support of
Ukrainian trade unions.
We are sure that Ukraine will win and we will rebuild our beautiful country.
We wish success to your Congress, we wish you fruitful discussion on how to address new
challenges in education sphere, and to adopt decisions aimed to ensure the prosperity of your country, greater social justice, common welfare of working people, decent work and a
sustainable peace in Europe.
In solidarity
