Putin Closes the Anglo-American School in Moscow

4 posts in this topic

In retaliation for sanctions imposed by the US Government for hacking into the recent elections, Moscow hit back and one of their sanctions was to close the Anglo-American School in Moscow which has around 1,200 students.  It is privately run but chartered jointly by the US, Canada and British Embassies.

Anyone on the ground heard from school officials?

From the American School:

 

Dear Parents,

 I am sure that by now you will all have heard and seen reports coming through the media stating that the Russian authorities have closed the Anglo American School, Moscow campus.  Senior Russian officials have refuted this story. 

The school is planning to open as scheduled following the New Year break.

Please be assured that our primary concern remains the welfare and education of our students. 

We will keep you updated through e-mails, postings on our website and if it is urgent through SMS.   

Best wishes,

Ian Forster

Director

Anglo American School of Moscow and St Petersburg
