Donetsk, May 31 – DAN. DPR Head Denis Pushilin has paid a visit to the Donetsk information technology gymnasium No.61 where 11-grade students are passing the Russian Unified State Exam.

"Today is an important day for those who pass the USE in the DPR. Earlier, graduates had to leave the DPR, it was an additional stress in these intense days. I wish you all the luck," he said addressing schoolchildren.

Pushilin said that making a Russian school exam available for DPR graduates is an important part of the integration with Russia.

Today, three schools are conducting the USE: gymnasium No.61, lyceum No.2 in Makeyevka and the Donetsk National University of Economy and Trade.

The Unified State Exam is a mandatory final graduation exam in Russia, which was adopted in 2009. The results are used as an admission exam to the higher education institutions. *ot
