Education and science of Ukraine in the realities of large-scale military aggression and global challenges of the 21st century



Palabras clave:

education, science, Ukraine, globalization, Russian-Ukrainian war.


The work characterizes the peculiarities of the functioning of education and science in Ukraine in the realities of large-scale military aggression and global challenges of the ХХІ century. Both general scientific and special pedagogical research methods were used in the article. Probable forecasts of the further development of education and science of Ukraine in such crisis conditions were formed using the prognostic research method. In the results, it was noted that almost the main challenge for the education of the 21st century became a pandemic of COVID-19, which significantly affected the development of distance education. The results also consider the problem of the state of science against the background of the unfolding of the Russian-Ukrainian confrontation. The conclusions summarized that after February 24, 2022 (the beginning of the large-scale Russian invasion), the Ukrainian government facilitated the implementation of many projects related to the development of online education. But the scientific sphere of Ukraine suffers from chronic underfunding and structural deficiencies in the organization of scientific research in Ukraine. In turn, the war of 2022 demonstrated the government's willingness to sacrifice funding for science, the military developments of which turned out to be almost unnecessary.
