Recently the Young Front activist Artsiom Lastavetski has been informed about his expulsion from the second year of the Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radio Electronics.

‘The rector, M.Batura, only said about my expulsion, there is no official order yet’, says Artsiom. ‘The formal reason for the expulsion is poor academic progress. It is quite strange, but the rector says that I am expelled because of some problems with education, which I had during the first year of study.’

Meanwhile, Mr. Lastavetski managed to pass all exams and was transferred to the second year before being informed about expulsion from the first year. The activist is sure that such repressive step of the university administration is connected to his political activities.

Bear in mind that at the end of June Artsiom was punished with 7 days of jail and fined for distributing information about the political prisoner Andrei Kim in Baranavichy.
