If only half of what is reported here is true, then every member of the academia should be up and protesting against this kind of sectarianism, politization, and sheer tyranny. Isn’t it the kind of authority abuse that clearly reflects the most reactionary undercurrents in the modern Russian society? In such a case, protesting against it is not just a voice for the institution of academic freedom but for the civil freedom as such.

Please count this voice in.
