Yes, Bellingcat is in the business of imaginary hype news nowadays and the Register gladly echoes it without any trace of reservation or cynicism. Come one, "university based car registrations"! More likely some administrative thing for sharing cars among campus (it's in the end a former communist state, with a stronger communal administrative mindset than we are familiar with in the West).
And it's not really a spy school either, these are fairly large universities involving more general studies. What relevance does it even have to the case? The logic is missing.
