Schools of Osh city were forbidden to celebrate Valentine's Day, the City Department of Education reported.
The legislation of Kyrgyzstan does not provide the official celebration of the holiday. "We perform a decree of the Ministry of Education and Science, and we believe that such practices have come from abroad, have a negative impact on the education of children. We have to be away from such events. Instead, on this day, the Olympiad will be held for students in the schools. We cannot allow to distract students from their studies,"the statement said.
The department reminded that the celebration of the holiday was banned last year, too.
