Russia’s ministry of education will today give school pupils across the country an online lesson, propagating the claim that Nato poses a danger to the Kremlin as Vladimir Putin ramps up his efforts to brainwash children as young as 11.
The President has been desperately trying to control the narrative in his homeland as the war in Ukraine enters its second week.
Teachers have reportedly been given manuals, which demand they describe the bloody invasion as ‘a special peacekeeping mission’.
Now secondary schools are hosting special war-themed social studies classes, in which pupils are told the official government position on Russia’s history with Ukraine.
Manuals have been distributed throughout the school system, instructing teachers to tell students that Ukraine did not exist as a nation until the 20th century, and that it suffered a bloody coup in 2014, which resulted in the installation of an American puppet regime, Al Jazeera reports.
The unfounded propaganda then claims Donetsk and Luhansk, recently recognised as independent by Putin, rose up against the ‘coup’, and were subjected to a ‘genocide’ for eight years.
Russia has therefore stepped in to carry out a ‘special peacekeeping mission’, the manual dictates.
Further details include claims that Russian security concerns over Nato have been ignored by Washington and fears of Ukraine’s capacity to build nuclear weapons.
