In his address, Sukharev noted that in accordance with the law, children of SVO participants have the right to study in bachelor's and specialist's programs at the expense of budget allocations within a certain quota.
At the same time, there are no preferential conditions for studying in higher educational institutions for persons who are officially married to citizens taking part in a special military operation, he added.
At the same time, due to the lack of spouses performing their official duty to ensure the national security of Russia, they are forced to revise their plans, including those related to education, due to the need to devote more time to children, due to the increased workload in order to solve everyday issues, the parliamentarian noted.
"In this regard, I ask you to instruct you to consider the advisability of amending the current legislation regarding the creation of quotas for undergraduate and specialist programs at the expense of budget allocations for persons under the age of 35 inclusive, married to persons who took part in a special military operation," the text of the appeal says.
Earlier, Senator Lilia Gumerova stated the importance of creating a directory of benefits for NWO participants.
