Decree of the President of Ukraine of February 19, № 64, adopted in the framework of the fight against terrorism and money laundering, applied sanctions to the “Sevastopol State University” as the “educational institution” created by the Russian invaders in Crimea, [1]. It is worth to recall that this structure was “formed” in October 2014 on the basis of Ukrainain state educational institutions seized by the aggressor – Sevastopol National Technical University, Sevastopol City Humanitarian University and Sevastopol National University of Nuclear Energy and Industry.

Also, the “university” illegally uses the seized property of the Sevastopol Faculty of Maritime Transport and Sevastopol Maritime College of the Kyiv State Academy of Water Transport, as well as Sevastopol branches of Odessa National Pedagogical University and Donetsk National University of Economics and Trade [2]. Among other things, “Sevastopol State University” actually controls the nuclear reactor seized by invaders in 2014, which belongs to Ukraine and was used before the occupation for educational purposes, to train engineers of nuclear power plants. Now the real purpose of the reactor’s usage is unknown and it is carefully hidden by the “university” from the IAEA.

Interestingly, that the “university” declares not only fake “Russian cooperation” structures in Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Syria, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan among its own “foreign partners”, but also points a number of educational institutions in China, Germany, Iceland, Jordan, Morocco and Vietnam as “partner” ones [3]. Therefore, the “Association of Reintegration of Crimea”, after the sanctions’ imposition, separately informed all these educational institutions that they were declared as own “partners” by a structure that has been proven as a subject of financing terrorism, money laundering and uncontrolled usage of nuclear reactors, violating the international law.
