I would like to question the following statement on this page: "Tsar Nicholas I ordered the entire main building painted red in response to student conscription protests during World War I to remind students of blood spilled by Ukrainian soldiers." I believe a citation is needed, not only because it is needed for information like this, but also because Nicholas I was Tsar from 1825 till 1855, whereas WW1 was from 1914 till 1918 (1917 in Russia). I believe the author meant to say Nicholas II?
