An international group of scholars and cultural figures has appealed to the European Commission and the governments of European countries with a request to help set up a university for repressed students and teachers forced to flee Belarus and Russia. It is reported by DW.

Among the signatories are the Nobel laureate in literature Olga Tokarchuk, the American historian Timothy Snyder and the economist Sergei Guriev, who addressed an open letter to the European Commission and the governments of European countries. They call to support the civil societies of Belarus and Russia, which are subjected to massive repressions in both countries. The initiators of the letter ask European politicians to help create an Eastern European University on the territory of the EU member states for repressed students and teachers forced to flee the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation.

It is noted that at the moment there are no specific plans where the Eastern European University may appear.

As we reported earlier, the European Union extended economic sanctions against the Russian Federation. Charles Michel, the head of the European Council posted that on Twitter.

"EU will pursue a united & strategic approach to Russia based on 5 guiding principles. We have rolled over our economic sanctions against Russia: Moscow must do its part to ensure full implementation of Minsk Agreements. We will explore formats & conditionalities of dialogue," he wrote.
