A small school has 11 to 12 classes (one class in parallel).

Also, information about the number of graduates “slipped” in the speeches of collaborating officials and is in the statistical reports for the past year. What do we have?

In the 2014/2015 academic year, 11,796 graduates registered to write the final work / translation. According to the statistical report RIK-76 at the beginning of the 2015/2016 academic year, 10,700 students were studying in the graduating classes of the annexed Crimea, while the final work (which was postponed to February 2016) was already written by 10,200 graduates …

Here we have information that allows us to look at the number of Crimean graduates during the occupation:


Academic years








Number of graduates





And draw your own conclusions.

P.S. A little hint. To understand what 700 students are (the number of graduates has decreased by that much compared to last year). One class has an average capacity of 25-30 students. A small school has 11 to 12 classes (one class in parallel). The school usually has up to 20 teachers and up to a dozen service staff.

The struggle between the two countries for Crimean schoolchildren continues. Last year, 26 normative legal acts (Laws, Procedures, orders, letters, orders, etc.) on education for Crimeans were adopted in Ukraine.

The Ministry of Education and Science was given the right to liquidate temporarily relocated universities, calling it a reorganization

Oleg Ohredko: the fate of 19 universities in the Law № 1731-VIII

Author: Oleg Ohredko, expert, analyst at the Center for Civic Education “Almenda”.

22 days after the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the Law, the President of Ukraine finally signed it. This information was spread by most media. Why such attention to this event, after all Poroshenko signs tens of laws, and here such attention?

The President signed the Law of Ukraine No. 1731-VIII “On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine Concerning the Activities of Higher Educational Institutions, Scientific Institutions Relocated from the Temporarily Occupied Territory and from Settlements in the Territory of Which Public Authorities Temporarily Do Not Exercise Their Powers “.

More than two years after the beginning of the terrible events, the legislators finally had enough time to resolve this issue. This law applies to 18 universities from Donetsk and Luhansk regions and one of the temporarily occupied Crimea – Tavriya National University.

The most important thing in this law is that the term “temporarily relocated higher education institution (scientific institution)” finally appears at the legislative level, namely:

“A temporarily relocated higher education institution, a temporarily relocated scientific institution is a state, municipal or private higher education institution or scientific institution that during the period of temporary occupation or anti-terrorist operation, but until the temporarily occupied territory returns to the general jurisdiction of Ukraine by the Decree of the President of Ukraine on the completion of the anti-terrorist operation or hostilities on the territory of Ukraine, by the decision of the founder (founders) changed their location (moved) from the temporarily occupied territory or from settlements in which public authorities temporarily do not exercise their powers settlements in the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities “.

Regarding TNU, this small law concerns changes in two laws, namely the Laws of Ukraine “On Social Housing” and “On Higher Education”.

The “Final Provisions” of the Law of Ukraine “On Social Housing” (Section IV) were supplemented by the following paragraph:

3-1. Employees of temporarily relocated higher education institutions, temporarily relocated research institutions at the location of a temporarily relocated higher education institution, a temporarily relocated scientific institution, and a certificate of registration of an internally displaced person are also entitled to social housing registration.

But according to Art. 10 of the Law of Ukraine “On social housing” and the Procedure for citizens on social housing registration, their registration and removal from it (Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine of July 23, 2008 No. 682), employees of temporarily relocated higher education institutions, scientific institutions already have the right to take them to the social housing register.

In addition, in accordance with part eight of Art. 11 of the Law of Ukraine “On Ensuring the Rights and Freedoms of Internally Displaced Persons”, local state administrations ensure the provision of temporary accommodation or social housing suitable for living for IDPs, provided that these persons pay the cost of housing and communal services in in accordance with the law. Local governments, in accordance with the provisions of part nine of the same article of the Law, provide for temporary free use to internally displaced persons from communal property residential premises suitable for living (provided that the person pays the cost of easy narrative essay topics utilities in accordance with the law). Although in practice this practically does not work, at the legislative level the housing issues of internally displaced persons are regulated, and the appearance of this text in the Law is superfluous. It was enough to achieve the implementation of existing ones.

The following amendments were made to the Law of Ukraine “On Higher Education”:

on retention of validity of accreditation certificates, but not more than for five years from the date of expiration of the relevant accreditation certificates (although such a document as “accreditation certificate” does not exist, but there is a “Certificate of accreditation of an educational institution “)”, But this is not the first time our legislators have changed the name of the document); temporarily relocated higher education institutions have retained the status of national ones; reduced number of students per position of research and teaching staff (introduced coefficient 0.8).
