Yesterday, July 15, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine ordered to allocate funds from the reserve fund of the state budget to compensate universities for students' debts for the second semester of education. This was announced by the Minister of Education and Science Sergei Shkarlet.
So, we are talking about applicants for education, registered in the territories of hostilities, as well as those who are in temporary occupation or blockade. Their number is more than 13 thousand people.
He explained that due to the lack of receipt of funds from tuition fees, it is impossible to ensure the timely payment of wages to scientific, pedagogical and other employees or to pay for the provided utilities.
Earlier, Shkarlet spoke about the format of the 2022/23 academic year. In particular, the authorities are considering an option in which some disciplines will be taught offline, and some online.
