Ilmeisesti Venäjällä on vielä jotain järkeä tallella: Dugin saanut kenkää
During conflict in Ukraine, Dugin also lost his post as Head of the Department of Sociology of International Relations of Moscow State University. In 2014, the petition titled "We demand dismissing a MSU sociology faculty professor A.G. Dugin!" was signed by over 10 thousand people and sent to the MSU rector Viktor Sadovnichiy. The petition was started after Dugin in an interview expressed his opinion how to deal with Ukrainians, "To kill, kill, kill. There should be no more conversations. As a professor, I think so." Dugin claimed to been fired from this post, the university claimed the offer of a department chairmanship resulted from a technical error and that he would remain a professor under contract until September 2014. Dugin wrote the statement of resignation from the faculty because it was necessary to be reappointed to the Moscow State University, but the appointment did not happen, so as a result he is no longer a staff member of the faculty and a staff member of the Moscow State University.
