Ukraine

 In
Dear IAVS members,
The war in Ukraine also affects us, the creators of the IAVS Bulletin. Anna Kuzemko, who traditionally designs our  newspapers, is currently in surrounded Kiev fighting for the freedom of her country. Therefore, the bulletin comes out late.
The final editing was done without Anna, so please accept our apologies for any errors and for the less elaborate formatting.
Due to the war, several of the events we planned will not take place – the 17th EDGG field workshop in the Kherson-Poltava region in Ukraine, as well as the post-symposium excursion to the Altai Mountains in Russia.
We would like to express our solidarity with the Ukrainian people in this way as well. We very much hope that the conflict will end peacefully soon.
We have little possibility of providing concrete support to help Ukraine defend itself against this invasion, but we encourage our members to support the numerous charities that are collecting funds to help humanitarian causes and  offering a safe place to students and scientists (http://scienceforukraine.eu).
