Students of BSFA, who went on hunger-strike, were hospitalized

In the Chernovtsy city six students of Bukovinsky State Finance Academy (BSFA), who went on hunger-strike and demanded the resignation of the head of their academy, Vladimir Pryadko, were hospitalized on the ninth day of the hunger-strike in connection with sharp worsening of health.

At the same time more than 20 students of the same academy, supported by students of Chernovitsky National University and Bukovinsky Medical University, continue the protest action in a tent town, which was placed near BFSA on April 25.

Deputies’ faction of "Nasha Ukraina" (Our Ukraine) in Chernovtsy city council sent a letter to the minister of finance of Ukraine, Victor Pinzenik, with a demand to solve the conflict immediately. According to deputies of city council, the cause of the mass protest action was "persecution of students for supporting Victor Yushchenko during presidential election."

Students of BSFA accuse the rector Pryadko of "authoritarian style of guidance", agitation for Victor Yanukovich during presidential elections, prohibition to be on strike during "orange revolution", coercive exactions in the academy and pressure on active workers of civil campaign "Pora".
