A new federal law on the employment of foreign citizens will allow foreign students to work without a work permit and patent. Previously, students of Russian colleges and universities with foreign passports could work only during vacations. The law was supported by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia, according to the agency's website.

The new law comes into force on 5 August.

The innovations will affect full-time college and university students on an educational program that has received state accreditation. Students are given the right to work at any extracurricular time. International students wishing to apply for a job must obtain a certificate from their institution. Employers are no longer required to obtain permission to attract foreign labor.

On September 1, millions of children in Russia went to school. And millions of their peers in Ukraine also went to schools. Everything seems to be the same: flowers, bows, well-dressed children, excited parents... And yet there is a difference and a very significant one: children in Russia go to schools to study in their native language. However, starting with this academic year, hundreds of thousands of Russian-speaking children no longer have this opportunity in Ukraine.
