Sevastopol students sing Ukrainian anthem while Russian flag is raised (VIDEO)



In Crimea, students of the Sevastopol National University of Nuclear Energy and Industry ignored the anthem and flag of the Russian Federation.

On Friday, March 28, in Sevastopol National University of Nuclear Energy and Industry a ceremony of lowering the national flag of Ukraine and the rise of the flag of Russia was held. During the removal of the national flag of Ukraine a significant portion of the students started singing the national anthem of Ukraine and continued singing it without music after it was hurriedly off soundtrack. During the further procedure of lifting the Russian flag and playing the national anthem of the Russian Federation, dozens of students ostentatiously left the parade ground.

As it was reported earlier, the rector of Sevastopol National University of Nuclear Energy and Industry Myhaylo Divizinyuk was dismissed from his post because of his refusal to lift Russian flag above the university and to move into the legal framework of the Russian Federation.

    The people of Crimea; and the Crime against the Tartars: who are now again subjugated…is untenable…Russia and Putin will lose…and have already lost: political credibility; and Western Trust, which is now gone. The top NATO General left Washington DC and has come to Command HQ to monitor the Russian buildup n it’s efforts to destabilize Eastern Ukraine and to further try to intimidate the Ukrainian government…which efforts shall totally fail….
