Fifty-three textbooks published with a support of a Soros Foundation — an NGO deemed “undesirable” in Russia final year — were burnt during a college in Russia’s northern commonwealth of Komi, a 7×7 internal news website reported Wednesday, citing an central minute from a informal Education Ministry.
“In Dec 2015, libraries of colleges [of a commonwealth of Komi] were legalised in sequence to find educational novel published during a ‘Renewal of Humanitarian Education’ plan of a Soros Foundation,” a minute reads. Such novel was found in dual libraries, and in one of them 53 books were confiscated and “destroyed by burning,” a request goes on saying.
According to a executive of a college library Yeleva Vasilyeva, a books were burnt in a college yard, 7×7 reported.
In Dec 2015, Russian media expelled a scanned duplicate of a minute from Andrei Travnikov, presidential attach� in a Northwest Federal District, to a emissary chair of a Komi supervision Tamara Nikolayeva, saying that books printed with a support of a Soros Foundation were “forming a perverted notice of [Russian] story and creation ideological directives visitor to Russian beliefs popular,” — hence theme to confiscation.
In late Nov 2015, a Soros Foundation was announced “undesirable” in Russia — a Prosecutor General’s bureau settled it was endangering Russia’s inherent sequence and a country’s security. NGOs deemed “undesirable” are thankful to stop handling in Russia.
