Fedir Shandor teaches from the trenches of eastern Ukraine.

It’s an ordinary Monday morning in Ukraine and Fedir Shandor is starting his internet connection to teach his classes online.

The university professor has been teaching virtually since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic. In recent months, he has continued teaching online for another reason: he is on the front lines of the conflict with Russia.

The 47-year-old joined the army after the Russian invasion but was worried because he wanted his students to continue studying.

The result of all this? From the trenches, he teaches twice a week on his cell phone on subjects such as tourism and sociology.
