A university in Northern Russia has burned 53 textbooks associated with the Soros Foundation, George Soros’ NGO.
The organization was recently labeled a security threat by Russian several weeks ago. The books were related to a “Renewal of Humanitarian Education” program at the school, according to reports. CNBC has the scoop:
College libraries in the Russia’s northern republic of Komi were searched last month to find textbooks and manuals related to a project run by Soros’ foundation, the local Russian news site 7×7 reported on Wednesday, citing an official letter from the regional education ministry.
Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky has criticized the incident calling it “completely unacceptable,” The Moscow Times reports.
