The 32-year-old teacher himself says that he posted the pictures before started working at school, and what was called Satanism was the Cthulhu call spell from Howard Lovecraft's book, Chelyabinsk online reports.
“One of the students recorded this on video and posted it on a social network with a comment: “The teacher summons Satan.” A few days later, on my birthday, the principal calls me and says: “Why are you summoning Satan there? Write a resignation statement on your own volition – parents want blood.” I refused to resign and consulted with a lawyer,” the teacher said.
According to him, he decided to acquaint students with Lovecraft in order to ignite interest in literature. The students allegedly did not show much enthusiasm for the subject and threatened to bring the teacher to justice “under the disgraceful article” if he pushes them too hard.
