* On July 2nd the dean of Harodnia (Hrodna) State University expelled
two philology students for the graffitti "Spynic rusyfikacyju!" (Stop
russification) that they'd drawn on the philology department
building. The two students, Jauhien Skrabatun and Ales Kursievicz,
were expelled inspite of the fact that several professors and
students have signed and submitted to the dean a petition asking not
to expell the two students.
PS. In other news: I was quite surprised to note that although
traditionally Lukashenka delivers his public July 3rd speech in
Belarusan, this time it was 100% in Russian.
