In this presentation I will share the outcomes of my research, the aim of which is to analyse the impact of Russian-Ukrainian war on learning and using languages, such as English, German, Spanish, Russian, and others, in Ukraine, with a focus on engagement considering the learner perspective. The survey and the interviews provided the data for comparative studies of experiences of Ukrainian students before the war and now. The students' opinions and beliefs, reasons and consequences, as students see them, will be discussed.
