Information About the Current Situation in Ukraine

On 24 February 2022, Russia launched an attack on Ukraine. The conflict remains ongoing. TU Berlin condemns Russia’s war of aggression. We have compiled a list of University resources for those affected by the war in Ukraine.

The Munich Public Library has also compiled reputable sources on current developments, links to more in-depth information, media tips on Ukraine, a compilation of offers of help and much more.


As the University Library we aim to counter the spread of misinformation and disinformation and provide you with reliable information sources. You should always critically assess your sources and their reporting. It may be necessary to fact-check each individual news item.
