Ukrainian Government to ban school education

Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine wants to replace secondary education with homeschooling and pedagogical patronage. The teachers are fleeing into Russia, Belarus and EU.

Such initiatives prove a collapse of the general educational system in Ukraine, since the state does not have enough funds to support a large number of schools.

Disproof

No evidence given.

In fact, the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine intends to add alternative forms of education. At the moment, the Ukrainian law “On General Secondary Education” mentions only two forms of education: general and external studies. According to the proposed modifications, it would include also homeschooling and pedagogical patronage. These modifications are not meant to replace the school education, but to help children who have special educational needs. The Ukrainian Government has increased school funding over the past years.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on Ukraine and Azov Sea.

On November 25 border patrol boats belonging to Russia’s FSB security service seized two small Ukrainian armoured artillery vessels and their crews after shooting at them, wounding several Ukrainian servicemen. Russia argued that they were in Russian waters.

However a bilateral treaty between Russia and Ukraine, signed in 2003 and ratified by Russia in 2004, governs the use of the Kerch strait and the Sea of Azov, which in the treaty is considered to be the “internal waters” of both Russia and Ukraine.
