There is only one of the seven schools with the Ukrainian language of education in Crimea, existed before the annexation.
This is stated in the UN report on the human rights situation in Ukraine for the period from August 16 to November 15, 2016.
“This phenomenon (reducing in the number of the Ukrainian schools — ed.) has been observed since Ukraine lost de facto control over the peninsula in March 2014,” said the report.
The document notes that there are 533 schools in Crimea. Only one of the seven schools with the Ukrainian language of education existed on the peninsula before 2014 – the Simferopol gymnasium still exists. However, this year the educational process in the Ukrainian was stopped in the first and the second forms of the gymnasium too.
The report also notes that the Crimean Tatar language is a language of education in 14 schools, i.e. one school more than in 2014. Some lessons are given in the Crimean Tatar language in other 19 schools.
