How Ukrainian "junta" repaired Russian school in Uzhgorod (PHOTOS)

Uzhgorod school №3 recently became the object of Internet memes in social networks. Thanks to the blogger Serhiy Denisenko, the entire Ukraine got to know that, as it turns out, the "junta" in the west of our country is actively repairing a school... with Russian language of teaching. Jokes aside, it was a really serious work done in the school and on September 1, children came to already renovated school. It was made possible due to the cooperation of Transcarpathia with Czech Vysocina region.

According to the headmistress of the school №3 Svitlana Fesenko, it was last year when the school was included to the program of the Ukraine-Czech Charitable Foundation "Viza". Then, at expense of the Foundation and the regional council, they renovated one wing of the school, which was actually falling apart and had long been closed. Also one of the classrooms was furnished with modern furniture, equipment, stands and more. The medical office and bathroom were renovated. This year, they began repairing the facade, replacing the roof and installing lighting. Also, the old inscription: Jubilejní škola Masarykova 1932 was restored on the wall of the school. The school was built in 1932, funded by the Czechoslovak government, as a public school where children of both Uzhgorod residents and Czech officials were studying. From 1935 to 1938, it was a high school named after TG Masaryk and was popularly called "Masaryk's school." The work on repairing the institution will continue next year.

According to the head of the charity foundation "Viza", deputy of the Regional Council Volodymyr Chubirko, this is not the only project in Transcarpathia. Together with Czech partners, they are repairing social facilities nearly in the entire region.

"Once representatives of the previous Uzhgorod authorities began to spread in their media false information that allegedly substandard materials were used for the repair of the third school (eg metal shingles, which by the way, roofs of the nearby buildings - the Medical Faculty of Uzhgorod National University, the Ministry of Internal Affairs Office - are covered with), express doubt that we would continue the repair the next year, I realized that we were doing a good and very useful job. When bankrupt officials, during whose tenure, not a single classroom, let alone a school was repaired, with surprise and frustration acknowledge that even in such difficult economic times, we are working on the reconstruction of schools, that means that we are on the right track. I want to assure everyone that we will not stop on that, and continue to work not only on the 3rd Uzhgorod school, but on other schools of the city," - he said.

Serhiy Denisenko, a graduates of the school №3 and the author of the meme mentioned in the beginning of the piece is also glad about the new look of the school: "While the Russian propaganda accuses Ukrainian authorities of ultranationalism and genocide, in the most western regional center of Ukraine, a Russian school is being repaired. And it is certainly a positive fact. One of the oldest schools in the city has acquired a new look, while preserving historic character. I like the façade, lighting, thanks to which the school looks very nice and solid. I am pleased with the new marble plaque with the names of graduates who have received gold and silver medals. This tradition "died" back in 1979 and now is revived in 2014. I wish these good deeds to continue and in the future side walls to be repaired too."

А русский преподается? Беженцы жалуются, что в Ужгороде детям негде учить родной язык.
