"There are different types of corruption, but corruption in the education system is one of the most cynical. Because this is the destruction of the intellectual potential of the country, this is the destruction of the child’s future - when he/she gives a bribe for a diploma or certificate," Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk during a meeting of the Ministry of Education and Science on Friday, July 3 .

Arseniy Yatsenyuk recalled that, according to the research of the Democratic initiatives fund, 30% of Ukrainian students "publicly declare they give bribes in the education system": "The perception of corruption in the education system has become a normal thing."

The PM appealed to the Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Serhii Kvit: "Your task lies in cleaning the educational system from the so-called higher education institutions that collected money and printed diplomas, and then these students immediately registered at the labor exchange."

"Stamping out corruption in the system of both higher and secondary education is a key purpose," the Prime Minister emphasized.
