“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”
― Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf
Propaganda aimed at inciting hatred towards Donbass residents is on the rise in Ukraine and even children are being targeted, Arte channel said.
Earlier, it was reported the Ukrainian Interior Ministry established a military camp where children are trained to handle AK-47’s.
The day an Arte reporter visited the camp hundreds of children were being trained there how to evacuate wounded from the battlefield. The training was supervised by an instructor from the notorious Azov nationalist battalion.
According to the rules, the camp admits children at the age of 12-18, but many of its trainees look much younger, the correspondent said, adding that some children may have been sent to the base against their will.
According to a local instructor, children come to the place to share the lives of their parents participating in the Donbass military operation.
While the bloodshed is far from an end in Donbass, the Ukrainian government is trying to spark more hatred among its own people, and this hatred is also taught to children, the report concludes.
