MGSU management resettles mass brawl instigators
Rector of the Moscow State University of Civil Engineering (MGSU) Andrey Volkov said that the conflict between Afghan and Chinese students in the University’s dormitory “has no racial grounds.”
According to the rector, participants in the mass brawl that took place in a University dormitory on Yaroslavl Highway the day before have provided explanations to the police and have already returned to the dormitory. To avoid a repeat of the incident, students that had fought have been placed in different rooms.
“We seriously interact with representative offices of the countries with which we cooperate, but this is not the case when drastic measures are necessary. An ordinary household quarrel, it can happen both with our citizens, and with foreigners. About a thousand foreign students study here. Such situations are always possible; they are young people, after all,” Volkov noted.
The mass brawl in the MGSU dormitory occurred on January 5 due to a household quarrel between roommates; a Chinese student refused to exchange bed and bedside with a neighbor from Afghanistan. In total, 20 foreign students took part in the fight, namely five Chinese and fifteen Afghans. Due to the triple numerical superiority, Chinese students suffered the most. Representatives of emergency services were summoned to the scene; the persons injured received medical assistance.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
