Note From the Editor In this news, it shows how the pandemic and an ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia affects the education sector of Ukraine and its economy. The students who lived in the industrial and educational centers of the country became a shield from attacks. However, when international citizens exit the country, Ukraine becomes vulnerable and gives Russia a chance to make an all-out attack on Ukraine’s major cities like Kharkiv, Sumy, Mariupol, and including its capital Kyiv.

Till at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ukraine hosted nearly 80,00 foreign students who came mostly from developing countries. India alone contributed nearly 25%, which is the largest of the total number of foreign students who study in Ukraine. These students are located in the major industrial and educational centers of the country. However, when the all-out attack and bombing of Kharkiv, Sumy, Mariupol, and the expansion of missile attacks into the western city of Lviv, shows that Ukraine had a shield of safety as long as foreign students resided there, and with the exit of these international citizens, the country is now far more vulnerable to an all-out attack from Russia on its biggest population centers, including capital Kyiv.

International Student Goes on a Mission to Help Incoming Refugees
