Problem. Talk that the building would be handed over to the Russian Orthodox Church has been going on for a long time, says “Paper” student of the Faculty of Social Technologies Kristina Tikhomirova. “It was a big surprise for me that they decided to arrange the transfer of the building in the middle of the semester, before the holidays,” she notes. According to Tikhomirova, it was previously discussed that RANEPA students would move out of the building at least a year later so as not to stop studying. By this time, they promised to prepare a spare building of the NWIMU RANEPA, the student emphasizes.

What’s next. At the moment, RANEPA does not have a building where students can study, said “Paper” Kristina Tikhomirova with reference to “information from the administration of the academy”, that is, RANEPA.

Students of the Faculty of Social Technologies collect signatures under an appeal to Patriarch Kirill (the appeal is at the disposal of “Paper”)however, there are no guarantees that this will help finish the semester in the building on Chernyakhovsky Street.

“Paper” sent a request to the press service of the St. Petersburg diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church, but at the time of publication did not receive a response.
