Students are carrying out a protest action against adoption of the new law on higher education near the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, about 100 students gathered near the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. Participants of the action said that mainly students of the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy and other Kyiv universities take part in the action.

Participants of the action noted that they are about to carry out the protest action until the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine refuses to consider this draft law. If it is not done, students express intention to carry out all-Ukrainian protest actions.

In particular, the students note that this draft law “On Higher Education” restricts autonomy of universities and gives to leadership of universities more rights to expel students.
