Department Comment on Ukraine

We, the undersigned members of the UCLA Department of
Neurobiology, stand in resolute solidarity with our
Ukrainian colleagues and the Ukrainian people, who are
heroically resisting the Russian Federation’s premeditated
and unprovoked military invasion of Ukraine.

We condemn, in the strongest terms, the shocking and
senseless brutality of the Russian military towards the
Ukrainian people, which has resulted in the deaths of
thousands of Ukrainian civilians, and the latest attempted
destruction of Ukraine.
