Now work is underway to amend Decree No. 420, which will take into account and regulate these issues."

"Regional education departments are closely monitoring the situation and are ready to take all necessary measures so that children who arrive in our country have an opportunity to receive high-quality education from 1 September. If the situation worsens, the Education Ministry will be ready initiate the regulations in the Union State to provide minors with everything necessary for attending our educational institutions," the deputy minister said.

He also noted that the country's educational institutions are actively preparing for the new academic year.
