“I have been in the army for 70 days. I went to the military registration and enlistment office on February 24. But I did not give up classes with students. Every Monday and Tuesday I have a couple at 8 am. So far I did not miss a single class. I always prefer morning classes: I read, and then you have time for another job, “said Fedor Shandor in a comment to the Uzhhorod National University Media Center.

The schedule of combat shifts is specially adjusted on the days of classes: “When I have a couple of hours and after I was on duty at night, I spend a couple of hours in the morning. In addition, on other days I deal with living arrangements, dig trenches, etc. “

Lectures are not stopped even by shelling: “I always spend time near the dugout. There was just a shelling, and we read the errors in the modules. I went to the dugout and continued with the lecture. “
