Children in Class 3C at the Ukrainian Free School have voted to become part of the neighbouring Putin School of Leadership. While the new head teacher of the Ukrainian Free School has said the vote has no legal power, other teachers have noted that out-of-uniform children from "another school" have been standing outside UFS's front gates preventing members from 3C coming in. The Putin School of Leadership denies playing any part in these "independent participants", but noted that a new classroom was presently being built that could accommodate members of 3C if necessary.
UFS has been hit by scandals recently after former head teacher, Viktor Yanukovych, was fired for inappropriate behaviour management techniques in his classroom. Several children from Class 3A had been hospitalised after a disagreement between several students and a teacher "escalated". Some have reported that the Putin School of Leadership may even have hired Mr Yanukovych.
Ofsted have condemned recent comments by the Mr. Putin, head of the PSL, and have pledged to provide short term funds to tide the UFS over into the new year. There has also been rumours circulating about removing some PSL teachers from the teaching register for inappropriate behaviour surrounding the recent vote. Some have been allegededly urging their students to visit members of Class 3C to ensure their compliance.
