Students of St. Petersburg State Agrarian University
Date of incident: January 26, 2023
Type of violation: threat of expulsion
Institution: College of St. Petersburg State Agrarian University “Tourism”
Summary: St. Petersburg State Agrarian University college students Ekaterina and Anastasia were summoned to the dean’s office because they subscribed to the Smart Voting project’s mailing list. They are threatened with expulsion, but the management claims that this is due to poor academic performance, although the recording of the conversation does not correspond to this. Both students claim that they signed up for the mailing list before the summer of 2021, that is, before the Smart Voting project was recognized as extremist.
