“Previously, according to the decision of the top military leadership, students who studied abroad until February 24 were allowed to leave Ukraine to continue their studies. The border guards fulfilled this norm by providing a pass. However, in recent months, massive forgeries of documents allegedly confirming men’s studies abroad have begun.”he said.

Thus, according to the State Security Service, only in July-August, about 600 people were found at the border who used forged documents about studying in foreign universities.

In view of this, it was decided to cancel the possibility of passing even this category of citizens. “That’s why male students are not allowed across the border today“, Demchenko summarized.

It will be recalled that in August the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhnyi asked the Ministry of Defense to allow Ukrainian students to study abroad.

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia, border guards have detained more than 8,000 Ukrainian men for attempting to cross the border illegally.

Earlier, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said when the ban on traveling abroad for men without military experience will be lifted.
