An exceptional Ukrainian Professor, Fedir Shandor, has remained faithful to education by teaching his students through virtual classes while fighting in the Ukrainian war physically.
Professor Fedri Shandor is a professor at the Uzhhorod National University in Ukraine before the war started. He believes one way to prove his patriotism to his country is to join the troops of his motherland in the war against the invading Russian forces.
According to a NBC News report, despite being at the war front, Professor Shandor found some time recently to deliver a lecture to students of the University.
In the virtual class which he held, the professor could be seen dressed in full military attire with his assault rifle, giving his students a lecture on the hot subject of tourism.
Confirming this, the university in a statement noted that Shandor had enlisted in Ukraine’s army from the onset of the war. Professor Shandor was quoted to have said that should there be sounds of shelling in the background, it will not affect the lecture.
Students across Ukraine have been faced with tough times as a result of the total disruption of academic proceedings in the country due to the Russian invasion.
Several students have flee the country and are looking towards enrolling either virtually or in another country.
