Occupiers in Melitopol are making children write letters to Russian soldier – Fedorov

22.02.2023, 16:21

In the schools of Melitopol, Zaporizhzhia oblast, the occupiers are making children write letters to Russian soldiers, Mayor Ivan Fedorov said on the telethon, Channel 24 reports.

According to him, these days Russian propaganda is affecting children as well – those who go to kindergartens and schools.

"If earlier the Russians would force our children to learn Soviet poems and songs, now they are making them write a letter to a soldier and bring socks and underwear from home, which will be sent to the front line, due February 23," Fedorov said.

He noted that the occupiers have opened about 10 youth organizations for "patriotic education" and forced schoolchildren and students to join them.

Fedorov explains that the purpose of such organizations is "brainwashing the young and endorsing propaganda narratives."

If the children do not comply, they will be punished, added the Melitopol Mayor.

As IMI reported, the Center for Strategic Communications and Information Security has released an analytical manual titled "Russia's hybrid war against Ukraine. How to triumph on the information front."
