The article examines the impact of the present military conflict in Ukraine on the education of its children. It analyzes the effect of the war on the essential characteristics of education as a human right in four educational settings: on Ukrainian territory, in occupied territory, in reeducation camps in the Russian Federation, and in selected European countries hosting Ukrainian war refugees. Education has been targeted as a potent instrument of war against the future of the Ukrainian nation. The conflict has affected education to varying degrees, from the complete unavailability and inaccessibility of Ukrainian education to low-quality educational services. © The Author(s) 2024.
