University Students in Grozny Under Threat of Expulsion for Dissent

The system of control and strict rules established in the Grozny University cause dissatisfaction among students. “Kavkaz-Uzel” reported that the attempt of students to express their protest against the university procedures has resulted in a threat of their expulsion from the university.

According to the students, the management has established an atmosphere of spying over students, while any dissent or an attempt to express their opinion on this or that issue are roughly suppressed, reports the “Kavkaz-Uzel” correspondent.

University students relay that a group of students has expressed their peaceful protest against the rules established at the university. The action was entirely peaceful: the students left the university campus, took off their neckties and danced Lezghinka. Someone reported this to the university management, and the participants are under threat of expulsion. An anonymous student relayed that the parents of the students “at fault” were trying to resolve the problem, therefore, nobody wants to make the story public.

“What is happening here now may only be called a complete outrage. Students of senior courses and those who were Grozny University students earlier say there has been nothing like this before. In addition to the fact that students are not admitted to classes if boys do not wear ties and girls kerchiefs, sudden checks are conducted during the classes. One may think that we are in a prison or in the army barracks and everyone must wear a uniform. The control is conducted by guards armed with batons”, said Aslan, a student of Grozny University, claiming that any petty faults of students are immediately reported to the “top”.
