Moscow students demand to fire Dugin from the Moscow State University for sparking hatred towards Ukrainians


The website for electronic petitions published the demand of the students of leading Moscow higher education institutions to the leadership of the Lomonosov Moscow State University to fire the odious “philosophers” Alexandr Dugin from the leading university in the country. The reason were his militaristic statements regarding Ukrainians.

The authors of the petition think that “‘professor’ Dugin’s public activities are discordant with the post he holds in the system of public education, damages the image of Russian science and the status of the Lomonosov Moscow State University. As such, during his latest statements, professor Dugin expressed direct calls for murder, claiming that this is his position as a professor (‘As a professor, this is how I think’).”

Philosopher Sergey Datsiuk published a statement earlier, with which the authors of the petition completely agree:

“On May 6th of 2014, in an interview to the agency Anna-News, professor of the M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University Alexandr Gelievich Dugin, while describing the so-called inhumanity of the Ukrainians, called for their murder. Literally, during the 18th minute of the interview, he stated, implying the Ukrainians, the following: ‘Kill, kill, kill. There should be no more talking. As a professor, this is how I think.’

  1. How does Dugin’s statement as an MSU professor accord with the statute of the MSU and its positioning in the social space of Russia and the world?
  2. Is Dugin really an MSU professor and if yes, will he remain a professor after this interview?
  3. Is Dugin’s position the official position of the MSU, do all the MSU professors share such a position?”

We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using ťhe chance - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you). We are now $5,000 short of our financial goal and need your support to continue working. If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation!

    How can a supposedly intelligent human being call Ukrainians murders when it’s Russia doing the murdering? What is wrong with the Russians …Talk about inhumane…it sounds like they fit the bill. They’re happy Putin invaded and annexed crimea to save their pride. They still have an imperialistic and expansionist mentally. They really want to rule Europe and kill Ukraine and USA/. They are truely sub-humans and still live in the 18th & 19th. centuries. Stalism is still in their brain and DNA. They don’t know how to exist in the modern world and they don’t want to be part of it. Frankly, I don’t give a damn what they want to be just don’t bother Ukraine.

    The Kremlin LOVES the lunacy of this madman.

    It’ll be interesting to see how far this petition will go and the impact it may have or may make, if any.

    Sorry for the negativity, but this creep’s *gameplan* has been and IS being followed by Russia’s ambitious geopolitical aggression and domination endeavors. (regardless of how NUTZ he is).

    Dugin’s more than very *skeery* and should not be in any educational setting, especially, not around students. He’s a perfect example of a mind-molester.

    Scary guy…and to think Putin follows his doctrine. Dugin calls for a Russian empire that stretches from ‘Dublin to ‘Vladivostok.’ He is infatuated with Haushofer’s geopolitics and fascism and now calls on the rise of Russian fascism. Also, what Putin did in Ukraine is clearly outlined in Dugin’s 1997 book. Here’s a must read:

    I am still looking for the “banderites” that the Russians said were the reason they decided to reject the intermin government, causing them to call for separation from Ukraine.
    The fact is, the “banderites” never existed and the Russian separatists have absolutely nothing to stand on even more so now because now we all know they never existed.

    The biggest scandal is to keep him as a teacher. Mr. Dugin, certainly, does not seem human and certainly is not a teacher.
