On July 3, a protest against the dismissal of Galina Vasilyeva took place in Petrozavodsk. According to our correspondent, about 40 people came to the picket near the building of the city administration, including well-known public figures, representatives of opposition political parties, teachers and parents of pupils of the Lyceum.
The picketers demanded to return Galina Vasilyeva to the Lyceum, and to resign the city manager Irina Miroshnik. One of the participants suggested appointing Galina Vasilyeva the city manager.
'The whole city knows that dismissal is unfair, it is ugly from moral and ethical point of view,' physics teacher Nina Mitrochenkova says. 'I wish that common sense prevailed and we returned our director'.
According to the protesters, they hoped to talk to Irina Miroshnik, who has not yet named the reason for the dismissal of Galina Vasilyeva. However, no representative of the administration came out to the protesters. The organizers of the protest action decided to collect posters with slogans and, if necessary, give them to the head of the city.
Information about the dismissal of Galina Vasilyeva appeared on June 23. Parents of students and her colleagues created a petition on Change.org and demanded to annul the decision to dismiss the director. In the government, a commission was established to analyze the situation, and the head of the republic, Arthur Parfenchikov, appealed to the city manager of Petrozavodsk, Irina Miroshnik, with a request to return to the question of dismissal.
From 2011 to 2016 Galina Vasilyeva was a deputy of the Legislative Assembly of Karelia from the Communist Party faction. In September 2016 she went to the Petrozavodsk Soviet.
