University rectors bribed students


The Committee of science and education of the Supreme Rada of Ukraine turned to the General Prosecutor with the request to call to account rectors of a number of higher schools, who forced students to take part in the meetings in support of President Kuchma. On 9-10 January rectors of higher schools of Berdiansk, Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk, Lugansk, Lutsk, Sumy, Kherson and other towns freed students from the lectures and made them attend the meetings.

The rectors promised to the participants of the meetings to put them credits. 30 MPs informed the Parliament committee on science and education about these scandalous facts. The committee, in its turn, addressed the General Prosecutor and the government. The meetings in support of Ukrainian President Kuchma have been going during several recent months throughout the country. The authors of this trick wanted in this way to counteract the massive protest action ‘Ukraine without Kuchma’.
