Half a year after providing teaching methods without animal experiments, we inspected their implementation in the Ukrainian universities at L'viv, Ivano-Frankivsk and Sumy. The results: a first prize for innovative teaching methods, a great deal of commitment on the part of the profs, but also the terrible reality of the cruel animal experiments that were commonplace until very recently.
Another visit to Ukraine in September/October 2009 resulted in a great success! Seven departments of four universities in Simferopol, Dnipropetrovsk and Odessa received animal-friendly teaching tools, worth 7,000 euros. More than 3,600 animals per year, mainly frogs and rats, are now saved from a painful death.
