A Call From the Academic Community to the President Don't Let Tabachnik Destroy Ukraine's Education

As co-chairman of the Kyiv-Mohyla Foundation, I participated in the meeting of the Foundations Board meeting, which took place in Chicago on March 19.

One of the reasons for calling the meeting was Ukraines crisis of academic freedom and university autonomy, which reached a critical limit. The Board adopted a Resolution aimed at calling attention of the worlds community to the subversive activities in the sphere of education of D. Tabachnik, current Minister of Education, Research, Youth and Sports.
