Russian special operation in Ukraine
Participants of the special operation in Ukraine must be given the right to free education at a university. This was stated in an interview with URA.RU by Yana Lantratova, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Education, a member of the commission investigating the facts of interference of foreign states in the internal affairs of Russia.
“We need to provide privileged places in universities for participants in the special operation. I have prepared a bill by which I propose to establish the right to receive education at the expense of the budget for civilians who are veterans of military operations and were sent to ensure the fulfillment of tasks during the military defense,” said Yana Lantratova.
She emphasized that now not everyone has such a right. “This is unfair in my opinion. We must provide access to higher education to everyone who is oriented towards work in Russia, who connects their future with our country and is ready to go into the thick of it to defend its sovereignty and national interests,” the deputy explained.
In 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law granting the status of a combat veteran and combat invalid to persons performing tasks during a special operation. The State Duma has already adopted a bill in the first reading, which will allow considering military service as additional points for entering a university.
