Astronomers Without Borders stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, who are a valued member of the world astronomical network. The international community must work together to take all the appropriate actions to put an end to the conflict and guarantee the safety of Ukrainians in, and outside of Ukraine.

We have reached out to members of our community from Ukraine and continue to make available our support. As the situation in Ukraine continues to worsen, we add our voices to those throughout the international astronomical community, including many Russians who oppose this war, in hoping for a return to peace as quickly as possible.
