The school year for schoolchildren in some cities of the Lugansk People’s Republic will probably start later due to the unavailability of institutions. This was stated by the mayor of Pervomaisk Sergey Kolyagin on Saturday, August 27.
“In the cities of Zolote, Gorskoe, the settlements of Toshkovka and Nizhne, more or less two schools have survived and require repair. Unfortunately, there is no electricity. Gas supply, for obvious reasons, is absent. There is also no internet connection. There is no stable Internet in educational institutions, which gives us every reason to believe that even in a remote format, the educational process here will not start on September 1, ”he said in an interview with TASS.
He added that schooling could start later – “on October 1, for example.” However, other options are also being considered.
“The second option is to bring schoolchildren to a mountain school (a school in the city of Gorskoye – Ed.) from Zolote, because there is no glazing in Zolote, and the mountain school has more or less survived. And the third option is to bring schoolchildren to the Zolotovskaya school with the division of the Zolotovskaya school. This refers to a school in the city of Zolote-5 (Zolotovskaya secondary school No. 4 named after Roman Salkov – Ed.) with the division of school No. 4 into two parts: such a format when two institutions are in one building, ”summed up the mayor.

On February 24, Russia announced the start of a special operation to protect the civilian population of Donbass.
