ANU stands-up for Ukraine

Volodymyr Zelenskyy will address an ANU audience, live

The president of Ukraine will speak 4.45pm Canberra time on Wednesday and take questions from a student audience in ANU’s Llewellyn Hall.

It’s already a sell-out and will be live-streamed (link to come).

“We are incredibly grateful to have President Zelenskyy share his time and thoughts with our community,” Vice Chancellor Brian Schmidt says.

“ANU stands in solidarity with the Ukrainian people in their defense of sovereignty and freedom.”

Rory Medcalf (ANU National Security College) describes the address as “a chance for students to engage directly with a truly inspiring international leader, and to learn about the impact of agency and resistance in defending world order.”

ANU makes a bunch about being Australia’s national university – it will certainly represent the country on Wednesday.
