On Monday, February 17th, at the session of the Main Board, Fedor Zdanjski, Dean of the School of Technology and Metallurgy, the presiding officer of the Council of the Deans stated: "Your victory is pure. Your rebellion caused the international public to pressure the ruling structures. Without you, the citizen protest would be crushed. You have scored a glorious victory. You returned the Belgrade University its dignity and we are giving you full credit for it. The essential decision we are all facing at this moment is about our further actions. The critical day is approaching, February 24th, after which even the most brilliant plan will not be able to make up for the lost. But, the ideals have no price, but although one year isn't irrelevant, even a whole year is a trifle compared to the 20 or 30 years of darkness."
