The leader of the "DNR" Alexander Zakharchenko presented the diplomas of North Ossetian State Medical Academy (Russia) to the graduates who, according to him, had graduated from the separatist clone of Donetsk National University in 2015, but received no higher education documents. This is reported by the separatist media.
According to Zakharchenko, it turned out that 64 medical students graduating in 2015 did not receive any diplomas. "You could not get diplomas because of the war, and many of you went to war", - the leader of the "DNR" explained.
And now, two years later, diplomas from Russian university were brought from Russia and were presented to newly-minted supposedly diplomates.
How did former students who went to war "pass state attestation in North Ossetian State Medical Academy", Zakharchenko did not specify. He also did not tell how health professionals were able to pass the internship without a document on the completion of higher education institution.
At the same time, he recognized that "the leadership of South and North Ossetia, as well as the deputies of the Russian Federation" from this region helped to obtain diplomas of the Russian university.
