Rastislau Pankratau, first-year student of Mahilou State University named after A.Kuliashou, was invited to the dean’s office, where he was informed about his expulsion.

‘I felt pressure on me in autumn 2007, when KGB officers began to invite me to talks. They started pressurizing me through the dean since April 2008. I was repeatedly offered to leave university on my own will, but refused to do it. An interesting fact, I passed my exams well, without problems, but at the summer exams sitting I wasn’t allowed to the first exam and received bad grades for the other two. The dean said on 7 July I would be expelled from the university for academic failure,’ Rastislau said in an interview to Bulletinonline.
