  1. Alexandra Kartokhina:

    As for these eternal squabbles that students from Crimea are taking university places from Russians, I can say only that it's completely absurd, and let me say that they have only allocated budgeted places for Crimean students to some universities and in some specialisms, which are often not the best. In some universities, questions about quotas are met with a shrug and a puzzled look.

  2. Michelle Phillips:

    It’s a lie. I don’t even know this woman. It’s totally absurd she would drag me into her storyline, i wish she would just go away and leave me alone.

  3. Bob Menendez:

    These claims are absurd, particularly from an administration that has taken a wrecking ball to America's global leadership on promoting fundamental rights across the world.

    I am alarmed by what appears to not only be multiple violations of both the State and Federal Constitutions, but also blatant government overreach by the school system, for anyone to conclude that a student's home is now school property because of connectivity through video conferencing is absurd... It is ludicrous for this All-American kid to be punished for taking responsible actions just as it is for his parents to be accused of neglect.

  5. Rosanna Arquette:
