Students of the Northern (Arctic) Federal University (NAFU) have submitted 240 signatures to the principal's office in support of SOTA’s journalist Darya Poryadina. On March 23, she was searched in the Navalny case, after which the young woman was forced to leave Russia. The university does not allow Poryadina to finish her studies remotely. This was reported by SOTA.

Students, teachers, journalists and human rights advocates have handed over a collective appeal in support of SOTA’s editor to NAFU’s Principal Elena Kudryashova. Darya Poryadina said that NAFU had not allowed her to switch to distance learning after she had left Russia. At the end of March, she was searched in the case of extremism in connection with Alexei Navalny’s activities.

According to the young woman, law enforcement officers began putting pressure on the university’s management so that she would be expelled if she did not return to Russia. Poryadina is supposed to complete her fourth year of journalism at NAFU in two months. The young woman filed an appeal with the principal and asked to transfer her to distance learning.

The university’s press relations service reported that the journalist had not provided the necessary documents for her transfer to distance learning. The management considered the young woman's letter about the reasons for emigration unmotivated.

Poryadina’s boyfriend Alexander Peskov emigrated together with her. He used to be the head of Navalny's headquarters* in Arkhangelsk. After the searches, a criminal case was opened against him for insulting a security officer, and the couple left Russia.

In addition to Poryadina and Peskov, other Arkhangelsk activists were also searched in the Navalny case. Security forces came to activist Ilya Leshukov, ex-coordinator of Navalny's local headquarters* Elizaveta Bychkova and social activist Olga Shkolina, who supports political prisoners.
