BUFFALO, N.Y. – University at Buffalo President Satish K. Tripathi provided the following statement regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

"As we look upon the Russian invasion of Ukraine with disbelief, anguish and horror, our thoughts are with the Ukrainian people and the extended Ukrainian family across our community, across our nation and around the world. In the moments and days ahead, we will continue to watch and hope that Russia will deescalate its rhetoric and violent actions, and retreat from the sovereign nation of Ukraine.
