UPD: 07/05/2014 Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is furious with the "sanctions" of the Swiss college because of Ukraine
The Russian Foreign Ministry angrily criticized the answer of the director of the college in Lausanne to the applicant from Russia, who appealed to him on the issue of employment.
The Foreign Ministry quoted the text of the response on its Facebook page.
"" Good afternoon, Madam!
We have considered your candidacy and thank you for your trust.
Unfortunately, we can not consider your file positively.
Our philosophy does not allow us to hire professors from the country:
- where the government illegally occupies the territory of another independent and free state,
- which incites and provokes a civil war in other countries by sending and arming provocateurs,
- whose president is constantly lying and does not respect either international law or signed agreements;
- and whose people support their president with the approval rating of 70%.
These are our sanctions and our protest against the policy and war unleashed by Russia.
I wish you the best of luck in your search, please accept the assurances of our highest consideration.
The comment of Russian officials, however, does not contain a refutation of what is said in the reply. Criticism is more likely built in the spirit of "the fool himself":
"Given the categorical response of Mr. M. Freiburghaus, it should be assumed that none of the 140 teachers of this institution is a citizen of the countries that bombed Yugoslavia who illegally invaded Iraq, who unleashed the Libyan war, in various forms sponsoring international terrorism in the North Caucasus and in Syria.
Otherwise, you might think that Swiss colleges are run by dummy fools. By the way, can you study Russian citizens there? Naturally, not for free, but for "blood money"? "
At the same time, the Russian Foreign Ministry urged its supporters to spam on the college post.
