The Ministry of Education of Ukraine is going to close schools in large numbers and limit the teaching in Russian language. A new wave of liquidation of schools will lead to an increase in the number of uneducated people in Ukraine.
No evidence provided. This is another pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the new Ukrainian law “on ensuring the functioning of the Ukrainian language as the state language” and “on education”, which provides for the transition of all educational institutions of Ukraine to Ukrainian - the state language - as language of teaching. No one is planning to close schools in Ukraine. As of September 2020, those schools which teach in Russian will be transferred to the teaching system in the state language - Ukrainian. In schools with teaching languages that belong to the languages of the European Union, this system will be introduced in September 2023. However, representatives of national minorities in Ukraine, in any case, maintain the right to study their native language. Neither of the laws limits the right of national minorities to communication, education, the conduction of various events and to release information products in their native language (video from 08.45).
