Students at Oxford University will be among those able to attend a virtual address by President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine on June 10th.

The event has been organised as part of an initiative by the Ukrainian Student Union, supported by the Ukrainian Embassy in London. President Zelensky will be addressing the students of eight British universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, and will take questions from their respective Ukrainian Societies. The Oxford University Ukrainian Society will be hosting the Oxford event with the support of the Oxford University International Relations Society.

A former actor and comedian who rose to fame playing a history teacher who became President of Ukraine in the comedy series Servant of the People, President Zelensky has drawn international praise for his leadership after Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022.

The address will be held in the Oxford Union at 16:30. Prospective attendees are encouraged to register to guarantee entry, as the organisers expect demand for place to be high.
