For 15 years St. Petersburg State University has been heading Nikolay Kropachev. During this time, he became a member “United Russia”warmonger and persecutor of university freedoms.
Kropachev got to the post of rector, among other things, thanks to his connections with Dmitry Medvedev. Medvedev was first a student of Kropachev, and then his subordinate.
Kropachev publicly last year supported attack on Ukraine. Moreover, even offered to enroll participants of the “special operation” to universities without entrance exams. The rector cleans out people with humanistic views from St. Petersburg State University.
In October 2022 from the university fired Philosophy teacher Denis Skopin. For “an immoral act incompatible with pedagogical activity.” This happened after Skopin took part in an anti-war rally, where he was detained. Previously, the leadership of St. Petersburg State University was going to expel 46 students for participating in anti-war rallies (was prepared part of the orders), but due to media publicity, students received only reprimands.
Despite the anti-Western and hateful position of the rector of St Petersburg University, no country has yet imposed sanctions against him. In addition, the Kropachev family found real estate in Europe.

Kropachev’s wife also earns at St. Petersburg State University, at the Faculty of Law, but mostly receives income from her bar association. Kropachev and Shatikhina divorced last year. Whether it’s fake or not is unknown.
While the rector intimidates students with an honest anti-war stance, his own daughter is having a great time in Spain, NATO and the European Union.
Shatikhina, by the way, also maintains her own Telegram channel, in which she criticizes Ukraine and NATO. But this does not prevent her from traveling to Spain right during the war.
