headline">Underground Classrooms Emerge in Ukraine Amid Ongoing War
In Ukraine, where the war has been raging for over 550 days, the new semester has commenced without fail. As a result, “underground classrooms” have recently appeared in the country.
Unconventional Learning Spaces Offered in Kharkiv
According to foreign media outlets, including Reuters, an innovative initiative has been established in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city situated near the Russian border. In an effort to ensure students’ safety, an elementary school classroom has been set up in a subway station. The reasoning behind this decision stems from the relative safety provided by subway stations, which are less vulnerable to air raids, enabling limited face-to-face classroom instruction.
Throughout the summer, the city of Kharkiv, with the support of UNICEF and other organizations, has been working diligently to create educational spaces within subway stations. Although these makeshift classrooms may not compare to the original school setting, they have been designed to resemble traditional classrooms. In total, Kharkiv has established 60 classrooms across five metro stations, with the capacity to accommodate approximately 1,000 young students.
Heartwarming Images Showcase Children’s Commitment to Education
Photos released by local media outlets depict students engrossed in their studies despite the ongoing tragic circumstances of war. These images serve as a poignant reminder of the tenacity and resilience shown by these young individuals. The hope is for them to return to their regular schools as soon as conditions allow.

According to foreign media such as Reuters, an ‘underground classroom’ has been established in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second largest city on the border with Russia. An elementary school classroom was opened in the subway station. As subway stations are relatively safe from air raids, it is decided that as few face-to-face classes will be possible.
The city of Kharkiv, with the support of UNICEF and others, carried out classroom installations in subway stations throughout the summer. It may not be as good as the original school, but it still has a similar look. The city of Kharkiv said it has prepared 60 classrooms that can teach about 1,000 young students in five metro stations.
Photos of classes reported by the local media show that children were engrossed in learning even in the midst of a tragic war. We wish the children to go back to school as soon as possible.
