KIEV, October 2. /TASS/. Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Thursday demanded that school and kindergarten curricula in Ukraine are adapted to the information warfare tasks and objectives.
Yatsenyuk urged Education and Science Minister Serhiy Kvit and Liliya Grinevich, chair of the parliamentary Committee on Science and Education, to “immediately adapt the curricula to the new challenge”.
Addressing the students and faculty members of Kiev’s Boris Grinchenko University, Yatsenyuk said “information weapons” were more powerful than tanks. “Our weapon is knowledge, patriotism and Ukrainian spirit in each kindergarten, each school and each university,” he said. “Patriotic upbringing of Ukrainians must be placed just as highly as the knowledge of foreign languages, mathematics and physics, or even higher,” he said.
