Universities to cover half of students' transport costs?


A measure to regulate public transport benefits for students should be drafted by mid-December, the official sources quote Alexander Lukashenka as saying during the meeting with students in Magilyou on November 23. According to the head of the state, universities should be responsible for the distribution of transport money.

"We could have raised stipends for students, but it would not resolve the issue. Students can spend this money for the things other than public transport. So, decisions should be taken individually in every case," Lukashenka said.
