Crimean university students sing the Ukrainian anthem to pro-Russian official’s face

Crimea

The pro-Russian speaker got a ‘warm’ greeting in one of the peninsula’s universities

On Tuesday, the speaker of the ‘Crimea State Council’ came to a Crimean-Tatar university, the Crimean Industrial Pedagogical University, where several dozen students greeted him with the Ukrainian anthem, reports journalist Osman Pashayev on his Facebook page.

“And though the hung tricolor [Russian flag] in the university, about 30-40 students sang the Ukrainian anthem to Konstantinov’s face,” wrote Pashayev.
