The courses will be taught in English with possible support in Ukrainian. For the winter semester, dr.

FIR is actively involved in helping students and academics who have had to flee Ukraine due to the war. Dean of the Faculty of International Relations doc. Ing.

We mediated work to another colleague at another institution, and we are still negotiating with one more.”
