Princeton University community rallies around Ukraine

March 16, 2022

On Feb. 25, the day after Russia invaded Ukraine, a rally in solidarity with Ukraine was staged outside Nassau Hall. “We organized one of the first anti-war rallies on an American campus,” said Ekaterina Pravilova, the Rosengarten Chair of Modern and Contemporary History, professor of history and acting director of the Program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies.

Pravilova organized the event along with Igor Khristoforov, senior research scholar and lecturer in history; Ilya Vinitsky, professor and chair of Slavic languages and literatures; and Carole Dopp, manager of global initiatives for the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.

“Now it’s time to work,” Pravilova said. “What else can we do? Educate our students and the public because not everything gets into the news.”
