Valeria Kasamara: HSE students hold very different political views. Some are liberal, some are conservative, others are communist, and others are monarchists. And when somebody begins to make political statements, saying that they are speaking on behalf of all students of HSE University, then, first of all, this is not true; it is misleading and misrepresentative of reality.
