Russia’s St Petersburg University students cheer for professor who was jailed for anti-war protests
With the Russian invasion of Ukraine crossing eight months, lives in the war-torn country have been shattered. While leaders from different parts of the world are constantly urging Russian President Vladimir Putin to end the war, heart-rending comments made by a Russian TV presenter to drown Ukrainian children have been widely condemned.
Meanwhile, turning away from war-mongering, Denis Skopin, an Associate Professor at Russia’s oldest university in St Petersburg, took part in anti-war protests. The professor who was fired by the University, received a round of applause from his students as he bid adieu on his last day at the university.
