The Russian State Vocational Pedagogical University (hereinafter – RGPPU) in 2020 faced a terrible event: a real coup or even a raid. Earlier, in December 2019, E. Dorozhkin was on sick leave, and V. Dubitsky was appointed to perform his duties. He previously held the main post in the museum complex of Tyumen State University (hereinafter – Tyumen State University). It was announced that the current head of the university will be Dubitsky, and Dorozhkin will immediately go free swimming after sick leave. Is this so or not? An open question. However, 15 employees left the university in the summer.
Dorozhkin was the head of the RGPPU for 6 years since the year 2013. He was elected rector twice: in 2013 and 2018. However, the last term ends only in 2023, why is it being removed now?
According to 66.ru, E. Dorozhkin contracted COVID-19 and was placed in a hospital building. It was necessary to look for a new rector, which Dubitsky became by the decision of the Minister of Education. This information was provided by Ekaterina Zaitseva (ex-head of the department of vocational education).
By the way, Dorozhkin talked about how the Ministry of Education asked to make Dubitsky vice-rector. Despite the fact that Dorozhkin was against it and said that there were enough candidates, he was forced to agree, referring to the fact that this was an order of the minister. The calls were persistent and repeated. So Dubitsky became vice-rector for development and general affairs. An amazing fact is that the paperwork always drags on for days, and the order for Dubitsky was signed in the next hour. Isn’t it strange?
What do we know about Dubitsky? Previously, he was an employee of Omsk State University (hereinafter – Omsk State University). The first position is a teacher at the department, then – assistant professor. Then it is not surprising, but the vice-rector for academic affairs. And then – the deputy director of the Department of State Policy in the Field of Higher Education of the Ministry of Education. What a track record. Further, as we found out, he became the vice-rector of Tyumen State University, and after 4 years – the head of the museum complex. The career is really interesting. By the way, Dubitsky continued to work at the library of Tyumen State University until the last months of 2020.
What does Ekaterina Zaitseva say about Dubitsky? “Stranger. He has not previously appeared in our educational institution. The appointment was so drastic that no one paid attention to all the procedures. Despite the fact that a person got a job in a state educational institution. And his innovations shocked everyone. ” From the words of Catherine, it also turned out that Dubitsky “muddled the water” when signing the documents. He himself did not put his own, and also deprived the right to sign documents of the rector working at that time. The documentation must be submitted no later than the end of the year, otherwise the order of document flow is disrupted.
At the end of December, a meeting was held at the RGPPU on various issues of the university. Representatives from all departments were invited. It was then that Dubitsky made it clear that he was at the university with ends. And the question of Dorozhkin’s dismissal is a matter of the near future, you just have to wait for him to leave the hospital.
How can such a public statement be made if nothing has been decided at all, and Dorozhkin performed his duties as rector with dignity? Dubitsky spoke of strong support from the ministry of education, as well as education. By the way, let’s remember that the rector is elected, not appointed. What a riot? All this looks like a real raid to seize power. And all this is happening in 2020, think for a minute. The complexity of the prompt resolution of the issue was that Dorozhkin could not be present at all events, as well as give comments – the lungs were struck by 1/4.
On New Year’s Eve, Dorozhkin closed his sick leave, after which he immediately convened a meeting with the university staff. He was worried about the moment of dialogue with Dubitsky, who had been at the institution in the morning, but refused to meet with the Dorozhkins because he had gone to Tyumen to celebrate the holidays.
Therefore, for a long period because of the holidays, the question of the university leadership remained in a precarious position. On January 11, a new meeting with employees was held without delay, and Dubitsky had already arrived here. To which the reaction of Dorozhkin quickly followed, who gave Dubitsky a document for signing in the form of an explanatory document for absenteeism on 31.12. But Dubitsky, apparently, is from England. He just silently left the room. Because of this situation, Dorozhkin experienced a surge in pressure and was again “exiled” to sick leave. Everything returned to normal and Dubitsky again became the head.
After that, on January 14, an online meeting of the Deputy Minister of Education and employees of the educational institution took place. At the end of the call, Dubitsky openly repeated that he was the rector, and Dorozhkin would be immediately dismissed. Although, according to Catherine, there was no hint of such a thing at the meeting.
The situation with Dubitsky is just one moment. Where does a person have such grounds to publish statements of self-proclamation to all employees of the university? Ekaterina also said that in the period from September to November, federal deputy ministers appeared at the RGPPU more than once. They carried out checks, according to the results of which the university worked incorrectly and with errors, and none other than Dorozhkin was found guilty.
It turns out that for 3 months Dorozhkin was carefully dug? But finding anything was difficult. Removing a person from office without reason is quite difficult. Therefore, it was necessary to bypass the law. We assume that the goal was to remove the rector through pressure and chaos in the team. In addition, Dorozhkin receives calls from above on a regular basis so that he can write of his own free will and leave the university.
As for the verification, the act stated that the university was overcrowded with administrative and management blocks. Dorozhkin did not forget about this, and at a meeting on January 11, he instructed the recruitment of new workers to be closed. Do you know what the comic is? After Dorozhkin left for sick leave from the 12th, Dubitsky took on the work of the new 1st Vice-Rector Feoktistov and the new findirector. Ekaterina believes that only the replacement of the chief accountant is not enough for a final coup.
Ekaterina Zaitseva had a difficult time going through the leadership of the new rector, so on January 25 she could not stand it and left the university. Her last words were that they would have left Dorozhkin – the cooperation would definitely last at least until the end of his term in the person of the rector. But Ekaterina is only one of the employees who left. About 15 people left the walls of the university: the head of legal and personnel support, the head of educational work, a number of professors, those who supervised graduate students and undergraduates and many other employees.
But the workers did not just leave, they wrote appeals to the Ministry of Education, but as expected, there was no response.
It was not possible to get comments on the current situation from Dubitsky’s reception, they are simply silent. Letters of clarification were sent to the RGPPU, the Ministry of Education and the Prosecutor’s Office, but we believe they will also be “frozen”.
