Ahead of the Day of the Defender of Ukraine, students, teachers, staff and officers of the Institute put flowers on the monument to the Defenders of the Motherland. The deceased were honored with a minute of silence.
It is a special day for Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. Since the beginning of the armed conflict, to defend our Homeland 36 employees have been mobilized to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and more than 300 graduates from Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute have volunteered. At present, there are more than a hundred members of the ATO and the Joint Forces Operation among the students, staff and officers of the university. 14 heroes gave their lives for the independence of Ukraine.
‘They left their names in the history of our university, in the history of our country. We are fighting for our independence at a high price, but we are convinced that Ukraine will gain it and eventually become a powerful, successful, beautiful country. That's why we are here today,‘ said Rector of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute Mykhailo Zgurovsky.
