MOSCOW, July 6 (RAPSI) – Russia’s Cabinet of Ministers has approved a draft agreement on the mutual recognition of education between the Russian Federation and the Lugansk People’s Republic.

According to the statement published on the government’s official website, the document has been already agreed by Russia’s Foreign Ministry. The issue was also preliminary negotiated with the LPR authorities.

Russia and the Lugansk People’s Republic will develop cooperation in education and science. The prepared treaty will lower administrative barriers in the recognition of education, science, qualifications and scholastic degrees, the statement reads.

A similar draft agreement with the Donetsk People’s Republic was approved in late May.
