A Kiev court reversed a decision by Ukrainian authorities to shut down regional branches of a private university that is a major purveyor of anti-Semitic propaganda. The Kiev Court on Economic Affairs ruled Tuesday that 26 provincial branches of the Interregional Academy for Personnel Management, or MAUP, can continue to operate. This week’s ruling overruled a decision last September by Ukraine’s Ministry of Education and Science that denied recognition of diplomas issued in 2006 to 4,655 MAUP graduates and ordered the closure of 26 regional branches. Jewish leaders long have criticized Ukrainian authorities for not doing enough to stop anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist propaganda that MAUP leaders spread through a number of school magazines. It was not immediately clear if the ministry would appeal the court decision.
