A Transcarpathian-Hungarian professor at the Uzhhorod National University joined the Ukrainian Territorial Defence Unit after the outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian war. Since then, he has been giving online lessons from the trenches to his students.
In the conflict-affected region of eastern Ukraine, Sándor Fegyir, a professor of Fundamentals of Tourism at the National University of Uzhhorod, gives lectures in the trenches between two garrisons to his students. The video was shared by Viktor Shchadei on his social media page.
“Just as in peacetime, Sándor is doing his job with unstinting energy. He keeps in touch with Transcarpathian volunteers who help the army, or, as he is doing now, he gives lectures to students,”
wrote Shchadei, who has run to be mayor of Uzhhorod several times in recent years and is currently serving with the tourism specialist professor on the frontline in eastern Ukraine, as Kárpátaljai Igaz Szó reported.
Prior to this, he thanked Hungary for its assistance to Ukraine in a video.
“Dear friends from Hungary, I am grateful for the help you are giving to our country in this difficult situation,”
said Sándor Fegyir in his video message in Ukrainian and Hungarian.
Earlier this week, Mathematician Viktor Troski thanked the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (Magyar Tudományos Akadémia, MTA) for its award in a video sent from the Eastern Ukraine front.
According to Kárpátaljai Igaz Szó, the topic of Viktor Troski’s talk at the External Members’ Forum would have been “Quadratic φ-SubGaussian Random Values and Processes”. The forum was held at the 195th General Assembly of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and Troski was awarded the János Arany Young Researcher Prize.
But the Transcarpathian Mathematician was unable to travel to the Budapest event because of the war.
However, he sent a short video in which, with the sound of rockets firing in the background, he briefly described his research and said he hoped to present his findings in person at the Academy after this past period of pandemic and war.
