The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on April 9 decided to terminate mutual recognition of educational certificates and academic ranks with the nation of Belarus, whose territory Russia used as a springboard for their Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine.

These include university diplomas and technical and grade school certificates, reported Taras Melnychuk, the government’s representative in the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament.

Belarus and Ukraine signed the agreement back in 1998, which created an equivalence between the two national’s academic system, meaning that Belarusian certificates and diplomas could be used for admission to universities and employment, without additional documentation.
