Particularly, on June 30, 2021 during the Krok 1 Integrated Test-Based Exam and English Language Proficiency Test at the Ukrainian State University of Chemical Technology, the Testing Board together with the Security Service of Ukraine and Migration Police Department of the National Police of Ukraine in the process of student identification has found a so-called “double” of a Nigerian citizen. This person had an ID document with signs of forgery that belonged to a fellow Nigerian.

This “double”, a Nigerian citizen, who was formerly a student at the Danylo Halytsky Lviv National Medical University, tried to enter the classroom at the Ukrainian State University of Chemical Technology, posing as a student at the Dnipro Medical Institute of Conventional and Alternative Medicine.

Based on this fact, the investigation unit of the Police Department № 5 of the Dniprovsky District Police Department under the National Police Main Directorate in the Dnipropetrovsk Region has opened a criminal proceeding № 12021046650000460, dated June 30, 2021, due to the evidence of a crime that is prosecuted according to the Criminal Code of Ukraine, section 4, article 358.

The Testing Board will petition to cancel the residence permits of these persons.

Dear students! Behave responsibly when taking your exams and always uphold the principles of academic good faith! Remember your legal liabilities and crime's inevitable punishment.
