Donbass State Technical University has more than 40 students from Kiev-held areas
LUGANSK, January 30 (Lugansk Media Centre) - More than 40 students from Kiev-held areas of Lugansk Region receive education at Donetsk State Technical University (DonSTU) under the aegis of the Donbass people reunification humanitarian programme, Vice Rector Andrei Zinchenko, Assistant Professor, PhD told a news briefing at Lugansk Media Centre on Tuesday.
“We also enrolled students as part of the Donbass people reunification humanitarian programme in this academic year. At present, our university provides training to 45 people (from Kiev-controlled territory of Lugansk Region - eds Lugansk Media Centre),” Zinchenko said.
The university plans to increase their number in the next academic year.
“We’ll have a somewhat better intake this year because our university is focused on engineering,” the vice rector said. ”We launched the Alchevsk steel mill and other enterprises, and all our graduates have work placement opportunities.”
People from Kiev-controlled territory realise that they will get a job after completing their study here. “We’re confident that the number of students admitted under the humanitarian programme will not decrease,” he said.
On February 17 DPR and LPR Heads Alexander Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitskiy launched the program of humanitarian assistance for residents of Kiev-occupied part of Donbass. The main goal of the programme is to support socially vulnerable groups. It envisions financial and medical aid and educational services, as well as measures ensuring the environmental safety of Donbass residents.
LPR Telecom and Mass Communications Ministry launched the humanitarian programme website.
