Professor Fedir Shandor giving lectures to his students.
A POET IN TRANSCARPATHIA
“I like to see students.
So please turn on the cameras.
Please do not sleep.
Mine is also almost always on.”
“They understand where I am.
So, they have to get out of bed.”
Says a professor in a trench.
Where he dug deep with his hands.
A local celebrity in Transcarpathia.
His lecture goes on today.
Not only a notebook and a pen.
But with the sounds of enemy artillery.
On the eve of this war.
He played an intellectual game.
“We argued a lot about whether there would be a war.
I was sure not.” But he learned it was at 6 am.
“There is no logic in this war.
There is no idea in it.”
“I did a comparative analysis.
I did not expect such a war.”
“In the beginning there were conflicts.
We lived in civilian life.
Here you have to live in brotherhood.
The army definitely changes people.”
“We have become Ukrainians.
Not Easterners, not Westerners.
Ten million pendulum migration.
People saw each other, rubbed.”
Go to the shelter at alarm.
First of all, save your life.
“It will be a long process.
But we will have everything.”
“I promised myself not to shave before the victory.”
He promised his students to win by the fall.
“We are protecting him from behind.”
Says one of his students.
This is professor of Uzhhorod National University Fedir Shandor. He lectures to his students from the frontline.
The soldier-professor immediately enlisted as soon as Kremlin troops attacked Ukraine.
"I have been in the army for 70 days. I went to the military registration and enlistment office immediately after February 24.
“But I did not give up on lessons with the students. Not even one was missed."
Social media users were astonished by Fedir’s dedication.
A Twitter user, Eric Smart wrote, “......what people are this, superhumans!!! Every single day, we learn something heroic from them, from cleaning bombed streets to doing daily chores!!! The people of Ukraine!!!”
Syed Khaleque said, “Every day we witness the bravery of the Ukrainian people. The world stands behind you.”
The original story is like this:
Lectures under fire. As a Uzhhorod professor he teaches from the trenches
"Aware of a poet?
Aware of a poet?
A poet of Cossack broods over the land.
Not noting a bullet.
Not noting a bullet.
You see a poet of Cossack in Borodyanka."
