On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a military invasion of Ukraine. As a result,
the United States and other nations have announced sanctions against Russia. These developments have
heightened security measures in countries sharing borders with Ukraine, Belarus and Russia, impacting
transportation and border crossing in those neighboring countries.

The U.S. State Department has issued a Level 4 — Do Not Travel Warning for Ukraine due to the
conflict. As a result, and out of concern for the well-being and safety of the UC community, we are
directing all members of the UC community to avoid all travel to Ukraine at this time. Additionally,
travel to neighboring countries should be carefully evaluated.
