On February 24, 2023 The Kule Folklore Centre issued the following statement on the continuation of the war against Ukraine

The Kule Folklore Centre continues to stand with Ukraine.  On this anniversary, we reaffirm our condemnation of the unjust war and we recommit to our mission of support for Ukrainian researchers, students, and friends old and new.

We stand in support of their scholarship—their freedom to speak out, to freely enquire into the nature of the conflict, to create a record of events, and to safeguard their documentation and findings against suppression and destruction, through the continuation of the Disrupted Ukrainian Scholars and Students (DUSS) initiative, and the free and secure storage of electronic data for scholars, archives and other institutions via the Ukraine-Archives Rescue Team (U-ART).

We invite you to join with our University of Alberta community in solidarity, at events taking place on campus, over the coming days and in the weeks to come. 

You can find out more about these events here

If you need help, please reach out, as support for the community, employees and students, is available
here and additional support for students is available here.
