The situation near the Olympic College in Kyiv is pretty hectic again. After an attempt to seize the institution, beat and detain students, the representatives of the Ministry of Education and Science and the Center for Quality Assurance in Higher Education arrived at the college today, accompanied by several dozen of police officers.
They demand from the administration of the college all the necessary documents regarding the organization of the educational process, but the staff denied them. The college administration went on strike.
The Kyiv branch of the National Corps has been near the Olympic College since the morning and is monitoring the situation. Clashes can start at any moment. We call on caring Ukrainians to stand up for students and teachers of the college, because we can’t count on the help of the police.
On September 24 the rector of the University of Physical Development and Sports Yevhen Imas arrived to to the Olympic College. The reason was the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers to join the college to the university.
The teaching staff of the college, the students began to resist, because after the decision was made, the school, where students from 6th to 11th grades study, is simply liquidated. Clashes broke out between police and students. Police violently dispersed the protesters and detained them illegally.
