The half-million city is now under complete blockade. According to official information, 95% of residential buildings in Mariupol were destroyed. The infrastructure was completely destroyed.

The head of the Mariupol University also spoke about the resumption of work in Kyiv, noted the importance of supporting internally displaced universities in Ukraine by European educational and scientific structures, and identified the main trends in post-war recovery.

 

It so happens that we are the only university in the world that has the name of the Hero City of Mariupol in its name. Therefore, the restoration of the work of Mariupol State University is a historic mission. I hope that after the Victory we will definitely return to our hometown and MSU will become the center of transformation of the New Mariupol!
