Impact of war on geophysical research in Ukraine: An eyewitness report from the formerly occupied palaeomagnetic lab
In the 8th year of its hybrid war against Ukraine, Russia openly invaded more of Ukraine. This brutal aggression affected millions of Ukrainians and divided their lives into “before” and “after”. All aspects of life have suffered irreparable losses, in particular, in scientific fields. This short communication is devoted to a small group of researchers who, despite all the difficulties of the war, continue to work for the progress of fundamental science. Representing the only palaeomagnetic laboratory in Ukraine, we share with the world scientific community our team's research progress before the invasion, reflecting events during the occupation, and after the liberation of some regions.
