MOSCOW, March 05. /ITAR-TASS/. The State Duma has suggested increasing quotas for Ukrainian students to study in Russia, member of the Duma Committee on Education, Grigory Balykhin, told journalists on Wednesday.
On March 6-7 deputies of the State Duma will meet members of the Crimean parliament at the Duma headquarters in Moscow. "The situation in Ukraine leaves no one indifferent. We should not allow infringements on the rights of the Russian people or have the Russian language ousted from Ukraine," the MP said.
He confirmed that the State Duma deputies would meet their colleagues from Crimea on Thursday-Friday. Problems of assistance to Crimea in the sector of social welfare support, health service and education will be discussed, the MP said.
"I think Russia might enlarge quotas for students from Ukraine to study in Russia," Balykhin said. He reminded of a recent resolution made by the Russian government that had increased quotas for students from all countries from 10,000 to 15,000. "The Ukrainian students are eagerly taking advantage of the opportunity to study in Russia free of charge, and I think that this spring the number of such applicants from Ukraine will grow considerably," the MP said.
