The Ministry of Education and Science recalled that Ukraine and the entire civilized world do not recognize the educational documents (diplomas, certificates, etc.) of students issued in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as well as in the annexed Crimea. The corresponding information can be found on the website of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.

The ministry further noted that students who started education in universities of Ukraine in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions that were under the occupation of Russia in 2014 can continue their education in any university in Ukraine.

Students who received education after February 20, 2014 in the higher education system in the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, can pass an apprenticeship in Ukrainian universities to recognize the qualifications received, the results of studies and the periods of study.

Earlier, Yuri Kazarin, a professor of philology, said that FSB officers come to the Crimeans who entered Ukrainian universities.
