Ministry of Education

Larisa Polyakova report, 16 December, 2016

  • Pre-schoolers: 54 009; school pupils: 137 660; professional/technical colleges students: 30705. Higher ed: 43086 students and 10716 staff.
  • 54 'objects' (buildings) of professional education and 54 of higher education destroyed. There are 106 professional education establishments, and 55 are 'realizing programs of preparing qualified workers'. While exact meaning of this language is unclear, it appears that possibly as many as half (106 total, 54 destroyed) of those professional education establishments are not functioning or had to relocate. Wish they use plainer language to describe the situation. --Resup (talk) 12:11, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

  • 26 May, 2014. First attempt to storm Donetsk airport, by Khodakovskii "Vostok" battalion". Opolchenie commander Staryi (a participant) recalls the events on video. There was an agreement between Khodakovskii and Kirovograd spetznaz (Ukrainian GRU) in the old terminal, that there will be no shooting; opolchenie also had map/knowledge of airport facilities. Operation was not well-planned, and opolchenie had little functioning heavy weapons (no functioning MANPADS, mortar shells without fuses) Initially it was according to plan, and airport was closed. However, later Ukrainian aviation made unexpected strike (that killed 4 opolchenie); and other Ukrainian units and right sector arrived, not committed to nonvolience; in addition to lots of confusion. Towards the evening it was decided to withdraw from the airport. One of the commanders decided to withdraw on Kamaz vehicles. Near Donetsk, 2 Kamazes came under friendly fire with many opolchenie killed. Total losses in operation, 38 opolchenie killed. Khodakovskiy version of events is not too different, does not dispute friendly fire.
