The authorities of the Belarusian State University (BSU) ordered to expel two students Volha Vaytovich (2nd year) and Savely Dubovik (1st year), one of the students’ Telegram channels reported on June, 3.

The two young people studied at the Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science (FPMI). They were detained on May 14 near the House of Justice, where the trial of the so called students case was held.

“These are the first political expulsions at our faculty, as well as at BSU on the whole. We are very sorry that due to the actions by the administration, BSU is rapidly turning into a feeble semblance of a university; political rreprisals are being taken there, international partners start to cease cooperating with it,” FPMI students say on Telegram.

According to the Belarusian newspaper Nasha Niva, Savely Dubovik was detained again on Thursday evening. His place was searched; the student was taken to the notorious detention centre on Akrestsin Street in Minsk.
