This summer Uladzimir Matsiushenka graduated from Teacher’s College. The authorities gave him an obligatory job in Lepel.
Uladzimir joined the initiative group to collect signatures for Aleh Tychyna. When he came to Lepel education board to get assigned to a school, head of the board Nikitsin told him: “After you joined an initiative group, no school principal would give you a position”. Thus, the college graduate was not given the job, despite the fact that under the law the authorities are obliged to employ him for 2 years.
