Students came forward to present various poems, speeches and words of solidarity with Ukrainian citizens during their war with Russia. 

The Student Union president, Evie Croxford, said: “Sheffield Student Union expresses its solidarity with the Ukrainian people, its learners and it’s educators and all of those who are suffering in the neighbouring countries because of Putin’s aggression. I want to extend my solidarity to those in Russia who are protesting against the invasion and express that Putin’s actions do not reflect onto the Russian people.”
