The journalist of the Spanish newspaper El Models Ethel Bonet in his article told how in the Ukraine are preparing young ultranationalists.

As with all camps there in the evenings different ideas, however, unlike regular camps, then sound nationalist songs, waving red and black banners of the far right.

«Torches, children in military uniform, with their faces closed Balaclava, his right hand flattened his palm raised,» adds Thornton.

«Here we are taught how to operate in combat conditions, we shoot from pump action shotguns at cans that are on the same height and distance — 80 — 100 meters — which will be our enemies. They have the same firing range as the Kalashnikovs. It’s like in a real war», — quotes the journalist of the words of one of the children.

According to Bonet, the camp Director Ivan Granatkin — hero of the euromaidan were in the forefront of the protesters during the events of 2014. He wears a pigtail on the shaven head and covered in tattoos from head to toe. In his opinion, these children are not nationalists, but patriots.

«We give young people a Patriotic upbringing in the conditions going on in the East Ukraine war. It is very important to educate the child so that he became a patriot and would defend their country if necessary», — he told the journalist.

Bonet talked with the Deputy Director of the camp, Alexey Zabolotny, who once served in the Soviet army as a translator. According to him, they prepare the children in the camp to confront Russia.

«We believe that our children should be prepared to confront the aggressor, and having such a neighbor like Russia, sooner or later have to engage her in a confrontation. So we must prepare him these children,» said Zabolotny. He also added that the dreams of these children become the future universal soldiers.

According to the journalist, in accordance with this philosophy, thousands of Ukrainian children for the past four years every summer military training in these camps, the ultra-nationalist orientation, thus any educational elements and standards of education there are completely absent.

«Even if the conflict in Ukraine will be solved, the danger will remain, as the younger generation was brought up in a spirit of hatred of those who are now on the other side. Reinforced indoctrination of children in military training is a mine with a clockwork mechanism under the future of Ukraine», — emphasizes Bonet.

The Ukrainian authorities in April 2014 began a military operation against the breakaway LC and the DNI, which declared independence after a coup in Ukraine in February 2014. According to the latest UN victims of the conflict began more than 10 thousand people.

The settlement of the situation in the Donbass is discussed, including during meetings in Minsk the contact group, which from September 2014 adopted three documents regulating the steps to de-escalate the conflict. However, after the armistice agreements between the opposing forces continued skirmishes.
