KOLIADA SUGGESTS TO CANCEL THE LIMITATIONS IN THE CHOICE OF SCHOOLS FOR CHILDREN FROM ORDLO AND CRIMEA
All children and students from the occupied territories should not be limited in their choice of educational institutions and should have access to any school or University throughout Ukraine.
The Minister for Veterans Affairs, Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons of Ukraine Oksana Koliada said this at the Mariupol Unity Forum, reports Ukrinform correspondent.
“We should consider developing a joint program so they (children and students from the occupied territories – note) would understand that they are supported here. We cannot limit them to the choice of educational institutions only within a certain territorial accessibility. No, the whole country, and possibly the whole world, should be open for them,” noted Koliada.
The Minister noted that those school pupils and students from the occupied territories who want to get a Ukrainian education do all this “despite”.
"We are already thinking about this and are initiating the creation of a working group under the Ministry of Education so that our children in Crimea and from occupied Donetsk and Luhansk would have the opportunity to study in our schools and higher educational institutions," added Koliada.
