Viachaslau Shved gets officially dismissed from Hrodna State University
The order for the dismissal of the
doctor of historical sciences was signed by the rector of Hrodna
State University, Andrei Karol.
Last month Mr. Shved was dismissed from the position of the head of the department of the Belarusian culture and regional tourism. On 1 April the university council didn't elect him to the position of professor at its contest.
As a result, Mr. Shved wrote an open letter to the university staff. He stated that he considered his dismissal as politically motivated – revenge for the publication of the book "Hrodna Studies. History of a European City".
