Appeal of scientists of SSI "Institute for Single Crystals"

Dear colleagues!

Scientists of State Scientific Institution "Institute for Single Crystals" appeal to the World to help Ukraine!

We are the Chemistry researchers at Division of Functional Materials Chemistry of State Scientific Institution "Institute for Single Crystals" of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

We are from Kharkiv, the city of Science, Education, Culture and Industry.

Before the Russian aggression, artists exhibited their works in theaters and exhibition centers.

Our city hosted more than 100,000 students from all over the world who studied at dozens of universities and colleges.

Scholars worked on their discoveries in scientific institutions. 

Life changed drastically with the first bombs and missiles raining down in the morning of February 24.

Russia is waging war in a most barbaric manner, causing heavy civilian casualties and bringing destruction to our city and whole our country.

Over a thousand of buildings, including residential houses, clinics, schools, kindergartens are now in ruins. Among them campuses of the Karazin National University, a leading classic university in Ukraine, the University of Architecture, the University Food Technology, the Agronomic University, and many others.

Please understand that Ukraine is paying in blood not only for its own freedom, but also for the peace of all democratic World.

We need the help of each and every one of you to fight tyranny and to promote freedom and victory.

We urge you to continue to pressure your governments to impose an embargo on all oil and gas supplies from Russia.

To keep fighting and to take back our country we need offensive weapons as tanks, aircrafts and missiles.

We need it to stay alive!

It is the people to be the greatest value of any country rather than its territory.

And these people must not be treated as guinea pigs in the bloody experiments of militant Russia while the rest of the world silently watches the bloodshed.

Help to end this war as soon as possible!

Save Ukraine!
