Resonant speech in the Bundestag, the Russian student from Yamal-Nenets Autonomous district, dedicated to the German soldiers became the subject of heated debate in Russian society, not reduced the second day. Politicians and bureaucrats thinking about what was the cause of the student statements about «innocent victims» of the soldiers of the Wehrmacht, talking about a possible fault of the teachers, and the General shortcomings of the education system. It will be an occasion for various checks to validate the teachers of the school where the boy studies, education programs teaching social studies and history, and, perhaps, the influence of foreign NGOs in the Russian school. There are those who are not inclined to dramatize the situation, believing that the student is simply incorrectly formulated my thoughts.

The teenager stood up, the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, speaking out against «exalted bullying» and believes that worry during a speech student does not mean anything bad. The children’s Ombudsman Anna Kuznetsova, also spoke against the harassment, urged law enforcement agencies to pay attention to threats against the teenager.

Speech

In his speech, posted on Youtube, student of Novy Urengoy told that in the framework of participation in the project about the soldiers who died during world war II, learned about the German soldier who participated in the battle of Stalingrad, whose biography he was able to study thanks to the information from open sources. According to the teenager, soldiers came to the pow camp and return home could not, as «died from the harsh conditions of captivity».

Student, studying the biography of a soldier who visited the «burial of soldiers of the Wehrmacht» near Kopeisk in the Chelyabinsk region, where, according to him, «I saw the graves of the victims, many of whom wanted to live peacefully and did not want to fight.» At the conclusion of his short speech, he expressed the hope that «the whole Earth will prevail, common sense, and the world will never see wars».

As told the mother of a teenager Oksana Desyatnichenko, after the sensational speech, the student began to receive threats. She also called purpose of visit his son in Germany, «peace mission» and report which had significantly reduced due to regulation, she said, was «the pacifist thought of the child.»

The resonant performance of the student has become the reason for various tests. So, the Russian Ministry of education requested information in the regional Ministry of Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug (YANAO) in connection with the incident. As reported by RIA Novosti press-Secretary of the Minister of education and science Andrey Emelyanov, conclusions can be done after studying the situation.

The mayor of Novy Urengoy Ivan Kostogriz assigned to a service check after a trip of pupils of the local grammar school in Germany and speeches in the Bundestag, said Tuesday the city administration. The administration also said that the trip was organized at the invitation of the national Union of Germany on war graves in the framework of the «national mourning Day».

In the comments of politicians and officials there is an opinion that in connection with the incident, questions arise not to the student presenter, and the teachers.

The Chairman of the Duma Committee for education and science Boris Chernyshov commented on the speech of student of Novy Urengoy in the German Bundestag, noting that teachers had to study his speech. He said that he will sent a Deputy request to the Prosecutor General to review the educational program, teachers, and public programs. Prosecutors must understand how and what they teach young people, what organizations work on the territory of Russia, said Chernyshev.

As reported by RIA Novosti head of the press service of the Governor YANAO Nadezhda Noskova, the authorities will assess the work of teachers of the school of Novy Urengoy, which has a teenager, perhaps this will be collected by the Commission. According to her, the persecution which began against the teenager and his family are unacceptable. «Whatever stumbled in your text boy, this should not be. In the case of teachers, the adults, will be tested, conclusions will be drawn», she said.

The head of the press service of the Governor of Yamal also noted that the number of turns used in speech, including «the so-called Stalingrad cauldron» and «innocent victims» soldiers of the Wehrmacht, probably the result of the intervention of a teacher of the German language.

«This is not the text of the boy, we talked to the parents, the mother explained that this report… is about to begin in the summer, and this was, of course, was not. He read that he gave an abridged version… He knows the history of the war, his relatives were at war. Now the main thing — not to give hysteria in relation to the parents and the boy himself because it is impossible», — concluded Noskova.

The head of the Duma Committee for education and science Vyacheslav Nikonov, commenting on the situation, said that the performance of the Russian pupils in the Bundestag makes you think about serious problems in the whole system of education in Russia. According to him, the time has come for a serious conversation about the strategy of education development, strategy of development of historical science in Russia and the teaching of history in General.

On the possible influence of foreign NGOs on the Russian school in connection with the incident considered in the Federation Council. In particular, Senator Igor Morozov said that the Federation Council can monitor the activities of foreign non-profit organizations in the regions to «understand the depth of the penetration of educational programs for foreign citizens in the Russian school.» According to the Senator, Russia is in favour of expanding the cooperation in humanitarian sphere and development of relations with Germany. «But there are events, the interpretation of which can not be twofold, and one of them — the Second world war,» — said Morozov.

Clear of ideology

Ombudsman for children under the President of the Russian Federation Anna Kuznetsova intends to ask the service to clarify which international educational programs are being implemented in Russia within the framework of the teaching of history and social studies to identify possible manipulation of historical facts. According to Kuznetsova, the incident in Germany has revealed «a number of underlying problems in the system of international educational programs, and attempts to use a different interpretation of history in the ideological struggle».

«In my opinion, it is important to look «behind the scenes of the theater». Who’s not a patriot, it will be understood, when we understand how «grow legs» in this situation. I see a psychologist for a report not more than priced in by the teachers the role that dictate the rules of the game. The boy worked the task and read out the text. After all, according to information available to us, novourengoyskiy school, where he studied the teenager for 10 years cooperates with the German school, including organizing the departure of the children to Germany at the expense of the receiving party. Before any problems with such an exchange was not: the students of both countries discussed the problems of ecology, security and so on. But history is a much more complex topic, especially when discussing it with the citizens of the two countries in a certain period of time in a situation of war,» said Kuznetsova, her words quoted by the press service of the Ombudsman.

The children’s Ombudsman believes that it is necessary to be attentive to international cooperation, especially if we are talking about honour and historical memory of the people.

«I believe that international education programs should in principle be clear from the ideology and even the possibility of its presence in projects involving children. I called many times and will say it again: enough to manipulate the children!» – said Kuznetsov.
An end to the persecution

«Innocent» Wehrmacht soldiers in Russia to discuss student speech in the Bundestag© RIA Novosti / Vladimir Fedorenkova in Photobacterium called «not poison» student incorrectly formulated Rechnoye politicians and officials, commenting on the sensational speech in the Bundestag, calling for an end to the persecution of the student. In defense of the teenager, in particular, spoke to the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, who said that, it is wrong to blame the student in the propaganda of Nazism.

«You know, of course, the performance of our Russian student in the Bundestag is unlikely to require any response from the President. In this case, it is not clear such exalted persecution that started to happen. It is obvious that the student didn’t mean anything bad, it is obvious that the student is extremely worried, when he spoke in the Bundestag. Any student, speaking in the Bundestag, in such a representative place, of course, will experience extreme excitement» — said Peskov told reporters, answering the question of whether the Kremlin’s reaction to the speech of the student.

«To accuse him of some evil intention, the more the propaganda of Nazism, of all mortal sins, it would be wrong», he added. Peskov said that he agreed with the opinion of the Russian presidential aide Andrei Fursenko that «we need to focus on education, and not to exercise in terms of misanthropy». Informed Fursenko called tolerant young people and to help those who were wrong.

The sound and the words that the student simply used the wrong word. In particular, the first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Franz Klintsevich noted that the criminal fault of the soldiers of the Wehrmacht, all of the ideology and practice of Nazism is historically proven and is not subject to revision. «But boy, I think probably not very well, even quite badly, was talking about something else. That war was a tragedy for the German people,» — said Klintsevich.

«Innocent» Wehrmacht soldiers in Russia to discuss student speech in the Bundestag© RIA Novosti / Vladimir Pescaprae in fotobanka: the man without traditions and a country without a history is nothing, postation urged the society «to calm down a little, not to mention to do any administration insights from the speech of the student.»

Unacceptable harassment of a school called the Minister of education and science Olga Vasilyeva, representative of the RF President on the rights of the child Anna Kuznetsova called to leave alone the teenager and asked the law enforcers to pay attention to the threats heard in the address of his family.

The «leitmotif» of the report seems clear: war is evil as those against whom it is directed, and for those who started it. But the way this thesis was discovered, caused a flurry of discussion, criticism and disturbances. And basically it came crashing down on a teenager, no one understood the reasons as to the real attitude of the child and his family to the war. Humiliation and harassment of patriotism is not exactly educated. Moreover, this reaction has completely the wrong message to children,» said Kuznetsova, quoted her camera.

Kuznetsov also asked the children’s Ombudsman in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous district Vitaly Oreshkin to examine the situation in the school boy, to do the necessary work with her guidance, teachers and parent Committee.

Stood up for the boy and the head of Novy Urengoy Ivan Kostogriz. According to him, the student shared his discovery that not all Germans wanted to fight, many just wanted to live peacefully. «It is in any case can not be regarded as the attitude of the boy towards fascism. His speech on the example of the history of this German soldier called for a peaceful existence on Earth and rejection of war, bloodshed, fascism, suffering and violence as such» — quoted on the website of the municipality, the words of the mayor.

He noted that the meeting of Russian and German children in the memory and sorrow Day in Germany – a long tradition, and interpretation of the genuine words of a child can be considered «a provocation not only against the student but the entire Russian people and our attitude towards events in the history of the great Patriotic war».
