Today there are a large number of those who took up arms and began to defend their motherland among students, graduates and teachers of educational institutions. They are heroes; they put their lives for Ukraine.
But heroes don't die as long as the living memory of them. Therefore, our primary task today both for young people and for the entire state is the struggle with the invaders — the Russian Federation.
